JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Florida police said they arrested a man accused of selling moonshine from a barbecue stand near the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said state alcohol agents observed Michael Freeman, 44, of Jacksonville, selling Grey Goose Vodka, Canadian Whiskey, Absolute Vodka and moonshine whiskey without a state beverage license near EverBank Field, First Coast News, Jacksonville, reported Thursday.

Freeman, who was also found to be in possession of 60 prescription Lortabs without a prescription on the bottle, said he purchased the two gallons of moonshine for $70 during a trip to Macon, Ga.

Freeman was taken to the Duval County jail and charged with possession of moonshine, concealing beverage with the intent of defrauding the state of tax revenue and trafficking a controlled substance.
