Billy Currington CHARGED!

Country singer Billy Currington has been indicted on charges of making terroristic threats against an elderly man.

A Savannah judge issued a bench warrant for Currington’s arrest after a Chatham County grand jury found “sufficient evidence” against him, reports CNN.

Though the prosecutor did not give any other details about the allegations, TMZ reports that the 39-year-old singer allegedly chased down 70-year-old tour boat captain Charles Ferrelle and allegedly made threats and more!

Police told local news station WSAV that Currington and Ferrelle had a verbal argument at a dock owned by the singer, and when Farrelle reportedly moved to a nearby dock, Currington boarded his own boat, followed him to a public dock and began to threaten the elderly man.

According to the police report, Farrelle told the cops:

“If I hadn’t gotten into my slip fast enough, I believe [Currington] would have run me over.”

Reps for the singer have not commented on the charges, but Currington did post a message via

Twitter, writing:
