Discovery Channel reality star Steven Ray Tickle makes money distilling and selling moonshine in Appalachia, so it's not exactly surprising that police found him getting drunk alone in his car, as NBC News reported Tuesday.
Officers found the 35-year-old "Moonshiners" star, known as Tickle, in the parkling lot of a Charley's Stop and Shop in Danville, Va., holding an open container of alcohol with booze on his breath. They arrested Tickle for public intoxication when he couldn't find anyone to take him home.
