Kyle Chrisley, son of reality TV star Todd Chrisley, has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault in Tennessee, according to the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office. The arrest comes just two months after his father and stepmother began serving prison sentences for bank fraud and tax evasion.
Kyle, who was a regular cast member on the reality series “Chrisley Knows Best,” was arrested by Smyrna police and booked into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center before being released on $3,000 bond. Details on the incident have not been released.
Todd Chrisley is serving a 12-year federal prison sentence, while his wife Julie is serving a seven-year sentence. The couple were convicted of tax evasion and other financial crimes in August 2019.
In 2019, Kyle Chrisley revealed on an episode of his father’s podcast, “Chrisley Confessions,” that he had attempted suicide earlier that year. He opened up about his struggles with self-worth and not feeling good enough.
Last December, Kyle shared further details about his suicide attempt on Instagram, writing, “For years I struggled with self-worth. I had no sense of belonging, never felt good enough.” He went on to say that he is now happier than he has ever been and knows his worth.
Kyle married his wife Ashleigh Nelson in 2019 and has a daughter, Chloe, from a previous marriage.
