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.

Time to make him a Senator, though he seems overqualified.

He is NOT a star. Moonshiners is just another waste of time reality show.

TMZ reports that the star of Moonshiners, Tickle, spent a few hours in the drunk tank for public intoxication. In Virginia, public intoxication is a class 4 misdemeanor and is punishable up to a $250 fine. If you get charged with public intoxication, it is possible that this charge can be dismissed for first offenders with completion of community service hours. Talk to a lawyer who can help you navigate what options are best for you.
