SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Country Music singer 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.

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.
