The "Pretty Good at Drinking Beer" singer's bond was set at $27,000 and he is still in custody after this surprising arrest, which went down in Georgia.

The arrest reportedly stems from an April 15 incident.

At that time, a 70-year-old tour boat captain allegedly went two fares past Billy's waterfront residence, which caused the musician to scream.

When they got to a public dock, Currington hadn't cooled off. Allegedly, at that point he began verbally abusing the captain and threatening his life.

"Unfortunately, I can't comment on this situation as this is an ongoing legal matter," he Tweeted. "It means a lot to me to have your support during this time."

He did not elaborate on the matter. Not quite as shocking as the Reese Witherspoon arrest, but still not one anyone saw coming by any means.
