Billy Currington wasn’t present in a Savannah, Georgia courtroom yesterday (Wednesday) when his lawyer entered a plea of not guilty to charges that the singer made terrorist threats against charter boat captain Charles Harvey Ferrelle.

In April, Ferrelle alleged that Billy threatened him from shore as he piloted his boat with a Canadian couple by the singer's house on Tybee Island, which is east of Savannah.

Billy allegedly yelled, “Me and my brother[s] will find you and [expletive] you up! We will finish you off if we catch you alone.” Court papers state Billy and his party tried to video the captain as he pulled into a local dock. Billy and his crew then motored up in a boat and continued to issue threats.

Billy is due back in court on October 4th.
