DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — A star of the TV show "Moonshiners" has been arrested for public intoxication.

Police in Danville announced Tuesday they had arrested Steven Ray Tickle — known on the show by his surname — at a convenience store on 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."
