Billy Currington has pleaded no contest months after he was charged with threatening a 70-year-old tour boat captain who cruised past the dock of his waterfront home in coastal Georgia back on April 15th.
Currington was sentenced to five years of probation and a $1,000 fine. He was ordered to undergo anger management counseling and have no contact with the boat caption.
In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop a charge of making terroristic threats.
This isn’t the first time Currington has gotten professional help for anger problems. In 2007, he sought treatment to deal with issues stemming from years of abuse from his stepfather.
“Even today, I call myself 98 percent laid back, but 2 percent is Little Billy — my inner child that’s hurt, sad and furious because he was never taken care of,” Billy said in a past interview with PEOPLE
