Billy Currington - Billy Currington Handed Probation And Anger Counselling Classes In Abuse Charge

Country star Billy Currington has been placed on five years probation and ordered to attend anger management classes after pleading no contest to a charge of abuse of an elderly person.

The Perfect Day singer was slapped with the count after becoming embroiled in an alleged altercation with a 70-year-old tour boat captain in Georgia on 15 April (13). He was also accused of making terroristic threats during the incident, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Currington surrendered to police the following day and the singer was subsequently released on $25,000 (£16,670) bail.

He faced up to 10 years behind bars if convicted of both counts, but he managed to strike a plea deal with prosecutors and agreed to serve probation.

He entered the no contest plea on Friday (27Sep13) and as part of his punishment, he was also fined $1,000 (£670) and told to stay away from his alleged victim.

In exchange, authorities agreed to drop the threat charge.
