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!
