Billy Currington Pleads Not Guilty to Elder Abuse Charges

Country singer isn’t in court when his lawyer enters plea to charges filed after a confrontation with an older man.

Billy Currington’s lawyer entered not guilty pleas Wednesday morning (Aug. 14) on Billy’s behalf in a courtroom in Savannah, Ga., a local TV station reports.

Billy, who was not in court Wednesday, faces charges of elder abuse and making terroristic threats against senior citizen Charles Harvey Ferelle after a run-in between the two in April, officials said.

That happened when Ferell drove his boat in front of Billy’s property near Tybee Island, police said.

The controversy cost Billy an appearance at a NASCAR event in May.

His next court appearance is Oct. 4.
