Billy Currington's Arrest

Billy Currington was charged Thursday with making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person. The arrest reportedly stems from an April 15 incident in which a 70-year-old tour boat captain went too close to Currington's residence, which caused him to scream, allegedly verbally abusing the captain and threatening his life.

He was released from a Georgia jail after posting a $27,700 bond.

Charlotte Motor Speedway has replaced Billy with Josh Turner as the pre-race act before next month’s All-Star Nascar race.
