It seems like the Chrisley's are facing even more legal trouble now that the once-estranged son of Todd Chrisley, Kyle, has been arrested shortly after his father was sentenced to prison.
Kyle was arrested for a violent crime only two months after both Todd and Julie surrendered themselves to serve their prison sentences back in November of last year after being found guilty of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.
Authorities have reported that the reality star was taken into custody after he allegedly got into a heated fight with someone at his workplace.
According to public records, the 32-year-old was arrested for aggravated assault by the Smyrna Police Department in Tennessee, US, on Monday (13 March).
Kyle was allegedly caught in possession of a weapon during the physical altercation with a co-worker, an official press release obtained by UNILAD reads.
The release alleged: "Further allegations were made that a “'fixed blade' was brandished by Chrisley during the incident."
The next day (14 March), Kyle 'voluntarily appeared [...] for booking procedures related to the active criminal warrant', it added.
"Bond was set at $3,000.00 and Chrisley was transported to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center," the press release concluded.
The news comes just a couple of months after Kyle's dad and stepmom, The Chrisley Knows Best stars, were slammed with a combined combined prison term of 19 years following their $30 million bank fraud and tax evasion scheme.
The celebrity couple were found guilty of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax fraud.
Todd, 54, was checked in to the Federal Prison Camp Pensacola to commence his lengthy 12-year prison sentence, while stepmom Julie, 50, was sent to the Federal Correctional Institution and Federal Prison Camp Marianna to start her shorter but still hefty seven-year sentence at the start of the year (17 January).
Before getting caught, the pair produced fake financial statements to give off the impression they were way richer than they were.
Through this fraud, Todd and Julie were able to successfully acquire loans that prosecutors claimed were used to buy cars, travel the world, and generally live a life that they couldn’t actually afford.
Kyle is due back in court later this month (20 March), the public citation records.
UNILAD has reached out to the Town of Smyrna Police Department for comment.
