He agreed to pay a $15,000 fine and forfeit all hunting and fishing privileges in Minnesota for the next five years. In the opening of his statement to Country Weekly, Troy says, “I would like to thank all the readers of Country Weekly for their support and patience during this trying time.” Troy also apologizes to all country music fans for the incident.
