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.
