SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Country singer Billy Currington has been indicted in Georgia on charges that he threatened bodily harm to a man over the age of 65.
A Chatham County grand jury indicted Currington on Wednesday on charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person. The indictment says only that Currington threatened "to cause bodily harm" to a man named Charles Harvey Ferrell on April 15.
District Attorney Meg Heap spokesman Daniel Baxter says a warrant was being issued for Currington's arrest.
A representative for Currington did not immediately return a phone message. It was not known if he had hired an attorney.
Currington is a native of the Georgia coast. His hits include "Pretty Good At Drinkin' Beer," "That's How Country Boys Roll" and "People Are Crazy."
