Tickle has had a long and complicated history with the law.
When he wasn't working as a distiller or as a carpenter in his free time, Tickle has had some serious political ambitions in the past. In 2012, per The Washington Examiner, Tickle was teasing a presidential bid. The year following, he also seriously considered running for congress in Virginia.
Unfortunately for Tickle, his political ambitions didn't come to fruition. Instead, he was faced with some serious legal trouble soon after. In 2013, Tickle was arrested for public intoxication, according to RTT News. Two years later, Tickle shocked the Moonshiners world again when he was arrested for a second time; in this instance, for carrying a sawed-off shotgun, per the Chatham Star Tribune.
On March 24, 2016, Tickle was given a three-year suspended penitentiary sentence for possessing the illegal weapon, also per the Chatham Star Tribune.
On Sept. 15, 2016, Tickle was arrested again and sentenced to five months in jail for a probation violation. Other criminal offenses the star has faced have included driving with a suspended license, which resulted in a car accident.
