Billy Currington Free on Bond Following Indictments in Georgia

Billy Currington was released on bond Thursday (April 25) after turning himself in to law officers in Savannah, Ga., following the issuance of a bench warrant for his arrest on charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person. A grand jury in Chatham County indicted him Wednesday on the two felony counts stemming from an April 15 incident involving alleged threats against 70-year-old tour boat captain Harvey Ferrelle. The two became involved in a verbal altercation after the 39-year-old singer complained that Ferrelle’s boat had traveled too close to Currington’s house in a gated community on Tybee Island. Ferrelle told police the singer later chased them in his own boat. Currington, a native of nearby Effington County, turned himself in to sheriff’s deputies late Thursday afternoon and was released a short time later after posting a $27,700 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in court during an arraignment hearing on May 28.
