R.J. Molinere and Jay Paul Molinere have gotten themselves in deep water. The father-and-son duo, both stars of History Channel's Swamp People, surrendered Friday, after allegedly beating a man with a beer bottle in Bourg, Lousiania, on Aug. 8.
The reality stars, alligator hunters on the History Channel series, apparently followed a 24-year-old man to a nearby mini mart and attacked him with a bottle of beer after getting into a heated argument with him on 101 Bourg-LaRose Highway, TMZ reports. The victim ended up with a black eye and a swollen forehead and jaw.
Swamp People premiered in August 2010, with the latest fourth season ending in July 2013. Both Molinere men appeared on the last three seasons, documenting their day-to-day activities of hunting alligators for a living.
