Some fans might find this mugshot to be dreamy, but this crooner might've committed two seriously heinous acts!

Country stud Billy Currington was arrested and booked in Georgia yesterday — he's being charged with making terroristic threats and abuse of an elder person!

Holy cannoli, that's not cool!!!

The Grammy-nominated artist allegedly got into an argument with a 70-year-old riverboat captain, eventually threatening the poor man's life!!!

The septuagenarian filed charges and now the That's How Country Boys Roll singer faces two different felonies that could carry serious prison time!!

His attorneys swear "each and every allegation" is pure bull-honky and we certainly hope they-re right, because that kind of behavior is YUCK!

Billy was released on $27,000 bond and is currently shying away from any public comments, but one of Billy's earlier tweets may have touched upon the incident!

He previously said:

We don't know much about the laws against harassing artists, but harassing the elderly is certainly frowned down upon!

    Let me guess. Billy was on his own property, and this captain was on the water, near enough to hear him speak, right? If my guess is correct, the captain frequently harassed this famous guy, then pressed charges when he finally got a reaction? What a crock of Bool Shyte. May all charges be swiftly dropped.

    Based on the tweet…I have a feeling the elderly man was doing the harassing and Billy finally got fed up. I'm all for protecting the elderly but its stupid to think elderly automatically means innocent. It sadly doesn't.

    Re: Huh?
    Your guess is incorrect. According to the actual report, Billy got into his own boat and chased the old man, and even filmed himself cursing & threatening the old man.

    The facts will be established in Court, before a Judge/Jury as to what transpired. That is how the Rule of Law works.

    Who is right and who is wrong will come out in the trial, if there is one.

    Whether the older man is obnoxious or not, whether the other party is being harassed, Rules of Evidence will establish the facts.

    Police reports are not evidence but a police report is a public record. You might want to look at the reports before spouting off.

    Let me just say that I don't think that Billy would do that. I think that the older guy must have said something to or about Billy for him to do that. I know that once the facts are found that Billy will be found innocent!!
