'Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia' Star -- Hey, I'm Famous ... Please Bust Me!

Exclusive Details

Sue Bob White -- who stars in the documentary "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia" -- learned a 'no duh' lesson ... don't name-drop yourself to cops, when you have outstanding warrants!

Sheriff deputies in Martin County, Kentucky tell TMZ ... Sue Bob and her soon-to-be mother-in-law Virginia came in to bail out Sue Bob's fiancé, Eric -- who she also referred to as her brother ... soooo, yeah. 

During the process, we're told Sue Bob couldn't help but mention that she's a famous TV person since the documentary's release. So, deputies ran her name -- just for fun -- and it turned out Sue Bob had an outstanding warrant for shoplifting. 

The name-dropping only cost her a $525 fine, but Virginia was less lucky. She had an outstanding warrant for public intoxication, and got arrested.   

Silence is golden ... and also something Sue Bob needs to learn.
