Smyrna police told People magazine that Chrisley was arrested after an alleged “physical altercation” with his supervisor at Penske Truck Rental, where Chrisley is employed. Police allege Chrisley wielded a “fixed blade” during the assault.

He has since been released from Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on US$3,000 bail.

Chrisley has not made a public statement about the arrest, nor have his lawyers.

Chrisley’s arrest comes only two months after his father Todd, 54, began serving a 12-year prison sentence for bank fraud and tax evasion.

His stepmother Julie Chrisley, 50, is serving a seven-year sentence on similar charges.

The couple were accused of engaging in a years-long conspiracy with their accountant to defraud multiple Atlanta-area banks and hide their wealth from tax authorities, all while flaunting their lavish lifestyle on their reality show Chrisley Knows Best.

The Chrisleys have three children together: Chase, 26, daughter Savannah, 25, and son Grayson, 16. Kyle is Todd’s son from a previous marriage, though Todd and Julie have full custody of Todd’s 10-year-old daughter. Grayson was hospitalized in November after he rear-ended a stopped vehicle on interstate highway, according to Nashville police.

Kyle Chrisley is set to appear in court on March 20.
