» Billy Currington Sued By Boat Captain
Billy Currington just can’t shake the man who pressed criminal charges against him for abuse last Spring.
Charles Harvey Ferrelle III is suing Billy saying he was mocked, derided and libeled before a plea deal was reached last fall.
The Savannah Morning News says the lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Chatham County. Charles is seeking damages to be determined by a jury for “significant and ongoing anxiety and fear” every time his charter boat gets near Billy’s property.
Part of the evidence being used against Billy is a post about Charles on his fan webpage where he wrote, he “ran like a scared rabbit on dry land,” was hallucinating and “talking to himself”, about the incident.
Last April, Billy pleaded no contest to charges that he harassed Charles as he drove his charter boat full of passengers past Billy’s home on Tybee Island. The deal put Billy on probation for 5 years. If he stays out of trouble for the duration the charges will be wiped from his record.
