Kyle Chrisley is facing legal trouble in the state of Tennessee. The Chrisley Knows Best son of Todd Chrisley was booked at the state’s Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. 

Chrisley was arrested for aggravated assault by the Smyrna, Tennessee Police Department and later released on a $3,000 bond. 

A mugshot of the 27-year old Kyle Chrisley shows him straight faced and wearing a McLane shirt. This arrest comes two months after father Todd Chrisley reported to the Federal Prison Camp in Pensacola, Florida for his twelve year sentence. 

The Chrisley parents were sentenced back in November of 2022 with Julie Chrisley receiving seven years behind bars. And at the time of the sentencing, Kyle posted   a now-deleted image of ocean waves on Instagram, captioning the photo with a bible verse.

The post read, Do not judge, or you too will be judged,” the post read. “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Who do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?”

Back in late 2022, a wide variety of family members were also posting about the sentencing with many hopeful that the justice system would see this through in some way.

Even the lawyer issued a statement saying “Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions.”

Others in the family like Lindsie Chrisley posted a picture on her Instagram story with friends sitting on a bed and wrote, “The best girlfriends, show up in the bad times with hugs and champagne.”

And yes, back in June of 2022 the Chrisley family confirmed how they believed their faith would get them through all of the hardships on their podcast Chrisley Confessions

Todd stated “We did want to come on today and let everyone know that it’s a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family right now. “We still hold steadfast in our faith and we trust that God will do what he does best because God’s a miracle worker. That’s what we’re holding out for.” 

The Chrisleys have had quite the year it seems like, and some people online are recounting Grayson Chrisley’s accident while this news of Kyle Chrisley surfaces. 

Nashville police told officials that Grayson was driving on the interstate when he crashed into the back of another vehicle just a few short months ago. The incident, which occured in November of 2022, had Grayson rushed to the hospital while the other driver refused to be taken into an ambulance at the time. 


Authorities made no arrests or charges regarding the incident. To this day, Grayson has not been able to recount any details of the crash, which some have blamed on the head injury he faced. 

The Chrisleys have not issued a statement regarding the arrest.
