Carrie tweeted, "Shame on TN lawmakers for passing the Ag Gag bill. If Gov. Bill Haslam signs this, he needs to expect me at his front door. Who's with me?"Her comments were not well-received by State Rep. Andy Holt. In an interview with WSMV on April 19, Holt responded to Underwood's threat, arguing, "I would say that if Carrie Underwood will stick to singing, I'll stick to lawmaking."
Billy Currington was indicted by a Grand Jury in Georgia this week for making terroristic threats and a charge of elder abuse as I told you yesterday (4/25).
Here is what we now know from the Tennesean and TV reports...According to the police report, Charles Harvey Ferrelle was in the middle of a tour with two paying customers when he drove in front of Currington’s house on Tybee Island on April 15. Currington became upset and started yelling at the boat, but Ferrelle continued the tour, and when he circled back around to Currington’s house later, Currington grabbed a camera, climbed in his boat and chased Ferrelle’s boat back into his slip, the report said.
Once on land, the report says, Currington told Ferrelle he was going to beat him up.
As Currington was pursuing Ferrelle, the report says, he drove too close to another boat dock and nearly knocked an elderly man into the water.
Currington was also charged with abuse of an elder person. It is unclear if that charge is related to the exchange with Ferrelle or to the elderly man who nearly fell in the water.
Currington was not arrested during the event, WSAV-TV reported, though police were called. The report states Currington intended to file his own charges against Ferrelle, but such documents were not available late Wednesday.
Currington, a native of Rincon, Ga., posted his thanks to fans for their support on Twitter Wednesday evening, saying: “Hey guys, I wanted to thank everyone for the huge amount of support that I have received already. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on this situation as this is an ongoing legal matter. It means a lot to me to have your support during this time.”
On April 17, Currington tweeted “harrassing artists often at their home by boat should be illegal. thas all i know.”
Crazy stuff huh?
