BILLY CURRINGTON was indicted yesterday on charges of making “terroristic threats and abuse of an elder person.”
This is from something that went down back on April 15th at Tybee Island, Georgia, which is 14 miles east of Savannah.
According to the police report, a 70-year-old tour boat captain named Charles Ferrelle was ferrying some passengers back and forth past Billy’s dock. He was passing so close that the wake almost knocked an elderly man into the water.
Billy wasn’t happy about it so he started yelling at Captain Ferrelle. The captain either didn’t understand what Billy was saying . . . or pretended he didn’t. Either way he ignored Billy . . . and I’m guessing that’s what set him off.
The next time the boat came by Billy grabbed a camera, jumped in his boat, and followed them to a public dock. That’s when Billy allegedly told Ferrelle that he was going to, quote, “Eff him up” and kill him.
The police were called but Billy wasn’t arrested . . . but he must have known he was in trouble. Two days later he Tweeted, “Harassing artists often at their home by boat should be illegal. That’s all I know.”
And then, yesterday, when all of this blew up, Billy Tweeted, “Hey guys, I wanted to thank everyone for the huge amount of support that I have received already.
“Unfortunately, I can’t comment on this situation as this is an ongoing legal matter. It means a lot to me to have your support during this time.”
