Swamp People reality stars R.J. Molinere and Jay Paul Molinere have been arrested after allegedly beating a man with a beer bottle in Bourg, Lousiania, on Aug. 8. The victim ended up with a black eye and a swollen forehead and jaw.

The 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.

Molinere Jr., 51, and Molinere III, 25, were released Friday afternoon from the Terrebonne Parish jail on $1,000 bonds each.

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.
