Billy Currington Pleads No Contest In Elderly Harassment Case

Billy Currington Pleads No Contest In Elderly Harassment Case
9/30/2013 3:15 PM ET

Billy Currington has pleaded no contest to charges connected with an incident that took place in April. The country singer reportedly harassed a 70-year-old boat captain that cruised past his Tybee Island, Georgia home.

The 39-year-old singer was sentenced to five years of probation, fined $1,000 and ordered to submit to anger management counseling after admitting to chasing, cursing at, and threatening to "finish off" boat captain Charles Harvey Ferrelle.

The "Let Me Down Easy" singer has suffered from anger management issues in the past, and sought treatment for his problems back in 2007.

While Currington was hit with stiff penalties for his outburst, prosecutors agreed to drop the more serious charge of making terroristic threats after Currington agreed to the no contest charge.

Currington's latest album, We Are Tonight, was released last week.
