Country Star Billy Currington

He may be an alleged threatener of old people ... but DAMN Billy Currington takes good mug shot.

The criminally rugged country star new face of masculinity was arrested and booked in Georgia today after a grand jury indictment ... which TMZ previously reported.

In a nutshell, cops say Currington was upset at a 70-year-old tour captain for steering his riverboat too close to the Grammy nominee's dock ... so he allegedly jumped in his own boat and chased the old guy down ... to scream at him and threaten his life.

A grand jury indicted the "Pretty Good at Drinkin' Beer" singer on charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elder person.

Currington's bond was set at $27,000 ... cops tell us he's still in custody.

Abuse of an elder person? What, do they have special laws for them now? That makes no sense. I think those laws are about people caring for the elderly. They don't cover making a threat against an old man.

I heard about this a little while back. The story TRULY goes like this: the old man was doing tours around the coast where billy lives, in his 3.5 million dollar home, and was always coming up on his property. Billy finally snapped and threaded the old bastard to stay away from his home or else. I feel like he did the right thing. Personally, I would've shot the old, creepy, stalking, geezer.

I think you would have own a boat to understand how annoying it is when people cause a wake near the docks by driving too close. It knocks the boats around the pier and causes a lot of damage. Its illegal, but unless the coast guard sees it they get away with it...unless a crazy redneck chases them down that is....Go Billy!

Why do these idiots, get a tiny bit of fame, a little bit of money, and all of a sudden they turn in to g-- dam Neanderthals? Oh Billy, you will be stocking shelves at Wal-Mart in 3 years, and this old man will probably be your boss. Country music goes through semi-talented 'tards like you every year or so. Example: hot right now, Eric "unibomber" Church. He is you, 6 years ago.

A quick Google search of "Billy Currington anger management" will show anybody that this guy has problems that go way beyond some old dude who was doing celebrity tours. This guy has problems that are set way back in a bad childhood and make him potentially dangerous to anybody who looks at him sideways. I feel for him, but he needs help. Better that he gets it now before he hurts someone.

Ahhh, Billy's a good guy. He went overboard yelling at an older person but he didn't strike him or anything. Billy was made famous by Shania Twain on her Party for Two song and video and he has had a bunch of hits. He's no terrorist, just a guy who was mad that a boater almost injured one of his elderly guests. "Terrorists threats" is so ridiculous in this case!
