DANVILLE, Va. -

According to WSLS-TV, at approximately 2:41 p.m. last Thursday a citizen approached a Danville Police Officer and reported that a man was drinking in public while sitting in a nearby convenience store parking lot.

The officer went to Charley's Stop and Shop on Franklin Turnpike to investigate the citizen complaint and located a man sitting alone in a vehicle. He was also drinking from an open container.

The officer approached him and detected a strong odor of alcohol as well as normal indications of being intoxicated. When he was unable to make arrangements for someone to pick him up he was arrested for being drunk in public.

Steven Ray Tickle, or "Tickle" as he is known on the Discovery show Moonshiners, of Pittsylvania County was carried to the Danville City Jail and released later in the day.
