Here's a shocker ... "Moonshiners" star Tickle -- who makes a living distilling blindingly high-proof alcohol -- was arrested last week for public intoxication.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, Steven Ray Tickle was popped in Danville, Virginia last Thursday afternoon after a police officer discovered him boozing alone in his car, which was parked at a convenience store parking lot.

According to police, the officer approached the car and smelled alcohol coming from the vehicle.

The officer says he attempted to make arrangements for someone to pick Tickle up and take him home, but to no avail. The officer subsequently placed Tickle under arrest for being drunk in public.

35-year-old Tickle was taken to Danville City Jail and was released later that day. Attempts to reach Tickle for comment were unsuccessful.

I don't get this whole "moonshiners" show. If moonshining is illegal, I don't know how all of them haven't been arrested. Their faces are clearly shown for everyone to see. They go through this intricate process of hiding tge location of their operations. They deal strictly through middle men and then they go compromising they're anonymity being on a national show. More power ro them. What they do doesn't bother or affect me any. Just makes no sense that they don't have their faces blurred out. Tickles never struck me as bright but have some common sense dude. You're already on the radar for manufacturing and then you're going to drink in a parking lot? Duh.

Why are these idiots famous? I've no idea who this guy is, but from the looks of his mug shot I'd say he's been drinking for about 4 days. My goodness.

Of course he was. He's half in the bag on every episode. He should go by "Pickled", not Tickle.

Why did they have t arrest him when he was just enjoting his beer?Why not take him home when they saw who he was?This guy is a star to the middle and poor class,just leave him alone and don"t let him drive.

THAT is not a "star" by any definition. It's a sleaze bag.

That headline just sets the bar for what is called a "star" so low. Really? A star on a program about whitetrash?
