"Moonshiners" star Steven Ray Tickle was arrested for public intoxication, police in Danville, Virginia, announced on Tuesday, March 12.

The 35-year-old reality star was arrested on Thursday, March 7, at a convenience store parking lot. He was drinking alone in a vehicle from an open container and smelled of alcohol.

After he was unable to make arrangement for someone to pick him up, he was arrested for public intoxication and carried to the Danville City Jail.

"Moonshiners" is about people making the illegal drink the show is named after. It follows a man named Tim Smith who is described as "the most wanted moonshiner in the U.S." and Tickle is his "partner and sidekick."

The show, which recently aired its second season, describes Tickle as "a hard working still hand who loves moonshine."
