TV’s Moonshiner Star Arrested
One of the stars of the TV show “Moonshiners” has been arrested. Guess what for!? Yep, public intoxication. According to fox19.com
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.
The show “Moonshiners” follows people who make illegal moonshine. I don’t know why, but I’ve watched a number of episodes of the show. The question I have is: “If these guys are being taped building stills, making, selling, and dringking moonshine, how come they don’t get arrested?” Can anyone explain this to me??
