Country star Billy Currington charged with making terroristic threats, more

Country star Billy Currington charged with making terroristic threats, more, Country western singing star Billy Currington, 39, is in a heap of trouble with the law. Currington was indicted on April 24 on felony charges after shouting profanities and chasing a 70-year-old tour boat captain along a Ga. waterfront and threatening bodily harm.

A warrant has been issued for the "People Are Crazy" country singer, according to NPR.

A Chatham County grand jury indicted the 39-year-old singer Wednesday on charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person.

Under Georgia law, each charge is a felony punishable by one to five years in prison.

Charles Harvey Ferrelle is the 70-year-old tour boat captain who was allegedly chased and cussed out by Currington.

Ferrelle said that on April 15, he was boating past Currington's waterfront Ga. home on Tybee Creek when he heard someone screaming at him. The screamer ended up being Billy Currington.

On Ferrelle’s return trip past Currington’s property, Ferrelle told police that the country singer “got in his own boat with a camera and chased Ferrelle to where he docks his tour boat. Currington was cursing and threatening to ‘(expletive) Mr. Ferrelle up,’ the police report said.”

"If I hadn't gotten into my slip fast enough, I believe he would have run me over," Ferrelle told police, according to the incident report.

Charles Ferrelle told police he had no idea what caused Currington to get so upset.

In addition to "People Are Crazy," Currington’s most recent hits also include "Pretty Good At Drinkin' Beer," and "That's How Country Boys Roll."
