‘Chrisley Knows Best’ star’s son charged with assault
Kyle Chrisley, the son of “Chrisley Knows Best” reality TV star Todd Chrisley, has been charged with aggravated assault in Tennessee, authorities said.
The arrest comes months after his father and stepmother, Julie Chrisley, were both sentenced to several years in prison for bank fraud and tax evasion.
Kyle Chrisley was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault in Smyrna, media reports cited Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Lisa Marcheson. Chrisley was booked into the Rutherford County Jail and later released on $3,000 bond, Marchesoni said.
The tight-knit, boisterous Chrisley family rose to fame on the reality show, first taped in the Atlanta area and later in Nashville. Smyrna is about 15 miles (24 kilometers) south of Nashville.
Federal prosecutors said the couple engaged in an extensive bank fraud scheme and then hid their wealth from tax authorities by flaunting their lavish lifestyles.
Todd Chrisley was sentenced to 12 years in prison and Julie Chrisley was sentenced to seven years behind bars, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta.
