Two of the stars of the hit reality show 'Swamp People' have been arrested for aggravated battery after allegedly hitting a man with a beer bottle in August.

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter told The Courier 51-year-old R.J. Molinere and his son, 25-year-old Jay Paul Molinere, both of Bourg, are accused of ganging up on a 24-year-old man Aug. 8 at a convenience store, hitting him repeatedly with the beverage. Larpenter says the victim suffered a black eye, a swollen jaw and a welt on his forehead.

Both suspects surrendered Friday and were booked on aggravated battery charges. Each was released after each posted $1,000 bond. It's unclear if either had an attorney.
