A star of the TV show “Moonshiners” was arrested in Virginia for public intoxication.

Police in Danville announced Tuesday they arrested Steven Ray Tickle -- known on the show as “Tickle” -- at a convenience store Thursday. Police say they received a report of a man sitting in the parking lot of Charley's Stop and Shop drinking, and they saw Tickle with an open container and smelling of alcohol.

The 35-year-old Tickle was released from the Danville City Jail later that day. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. A spokesman for Discovery Channel, which airs the show, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

“Moonshiners” follows people making the illegal brew. The show's website describes Tickle as “a hard working still hand who loves moonshine.”
