billy currington mug shot tmz Billy Currington mug shot released   Country music star indicted for terroristic threatsCountry singer Billy Currington is the latest addition to the celebrity mug shot hall of fame. The “Hey Girl” singer was indicted by a Grand Jury in Georgia on charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elder person.

According to a report by TMZ, Currington got into a boat and chased down a 70-year-old boat captain, Charles Ferrelle, with a camera on April 15. Currington reportedly hurled verbal abuse at Ferrelle, promised to “f*** him up” and threatened his life because the man steered his river vessel too close to Billy’s boat dock. In fairness, a witness tells cops the boat’s wake nearly knocked an elderly man into the water.

Since Currington had a camera with him, maybe there’s a chance some video of the exchange will surface. For now, the mug shot is all there is to look at. A judge set Currington’s bond at $27,000.

Currington has had 11 Top 4 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, with six No. 1 singles. He was nominated for a Grammy Award and two Academy of Country Music awards in 2010. His 2005 single, “Must Be Doin’ Something Right” netted him a CMT Music Award in 2006 for Hottest Video of the Year. Currington’s fifth studio album is on the way, as the first single, “Hey Girl,” dropped in March.
