Todd Chrisley‘s son Kyle, 31, has been arrested and booked for felony aggravated assault charges and released after posting $3,000 bail bond.
A representative from Rutherford County Jail in Tennessee told TMZ he was booked by the Smyrna Police Department and he’s due in court March 20.
Details of the arrest remain unclear, but it comes just months after Todd started his federal prison sentence for bank fraud and tax evasion in January.
Todd is serving a 12-year sentence, while his wife, Julie, is doing seven years.

Todd is father to Kyle and daughter Lindsie, 33, with his ex-wife, Teresa Terry and father to sons Chase, 26, and Grayson, 16, and daughter Savannah, 25, with Julie.
Amid Kyle’s battles with addiction and bipolar disorder in 2016, Todd and Julie were awarded full custody of his daughter with Angela Johnson, Chloe.
Savannah said prior to the sentencing that she now had custody of Grayson and Chloe.
Kyle and Todd have had a tense relationship over the years according to the outlet after they took custody of Chloe – however have since been seen to bury the hatchet.
DailyMail.com has contacted Rutherford County Jail in Tennessee and Smyrna Police Department for more details about Kyle’s arrest.
The aggravated assault charges come just months after Todd and Julie Chrisley started their prison sentences.
The celebrity couple were found guilty on federal charges of bank fraud and tax evasion and submitting false documents to banks to take out loans, reportedly more than $30 million worth, to finance their opulent lifestyle.
They also used a production company to hide income from the IRS, lawyers argued.
Todd was ordered to serve 12 years in prison, and Julie to serve seven, with a 16-month probation period for both upon their release.
Julie will swap her closets of designer clothes for a full khaki uniform at the Kentucky prison.
Todd is set to begin his sentence at FPC Pensacola, a minimum-security prison in Florida long known for being one of the cushiest prisons in the country.
But despite its reputation, the disgraced Chrisley Knows Best star will still be forced to live within a strict schedule that will see him waking at 4.45am daily, making his bed with military precision, and working a prison job all morning and into the afternoon.
The star will be allowed up to five visitors at a time during evening visiting hours on Fridays, and during the day on weekends.
After their sentencing Kyle took to social media posting a Bible verse about not judging others.
It read: ‘Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 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?’

The Chrisleys gained fame with their show Chrisley Knows Best, which follows their tight-knit, boisterous family.
Federal prosecutors said the couple engaged in an extensive bank fraud scheme and then hid their wealth from tax authorities while flaunting their lavish lifestyle.
‘The Chrisleys have built an empire based on the lie that their wealth came from dedication and hard work,’ prosecutors wrote in a pre-sentencing court filing at the time of sentencing.
‘The jury’s unanimous verdict sets the record straight: Todd and Julie Chrisley are career swindlers who have made a living by jumping from one fraud scheme to another, lying to banks, stiffing vendors, and evading taxes at every corner.’
Attorneys for Todd argued in a court filing that he should not face more than nine years in prison.
Lawyers for Julie said a reasonable sentence for her would be probation with special conditions and no prison time.
The Chrisleys were convicted in June on charges of bank fraud, tax evasion and conspiring to defraud the IRS. Julie Chrisley was also convicted of wire fraud and obstruction of justice.
Peter Tarantino, 60, an accountant hired by the couple, was found guilty of conspiracy to defraud the IRS and willfully filing false tax returns.
He was sentenced to three years in prison followed by three years of supervised release.
Prosecutors have said the Chrisleys submitted fake documents to banks and managed to secure more than $30 million in fraudulent loans.
Once that scheme fell apart, they walked away from their responsibility to repay the loans when Todd Chrisley declared bankruptcy.
While in bankruptcy, they started their reality show and ‘flaunted their wealth and lifestyle to the American public,’ prosecutors wrote, and then hid the millions they made from the show from the IRS.
The Chrisleys also submitted a false document to a grand jury that was investigating their crimes and then convinced friends and family members to lie under oath during their trial, prosecutors argued.
Neither has shown any remorse and they have, instead, blamed others for their criminal conduct, prosecutors wrote.
‘The Chrisleys are unique given the varied and wide-ranging scope of their fraudulent conduct and the extent to which they engaged in fraud and obstructive behavior for a prolonged period of time,’ prosecutors said.

Todd’s lawyers said in a filing that the government never produced any evidence that he meant to defraud the banks, and that the loss amount calculated was incorrect.
They also noted that the offenses were committed a long time ago and said he has no serious criminal history and has medical conditions that ‘would make imprisonment disproportionately harsh.’
His lawyers had also submitted letters from friends and business associates that show ‘a history of good deeds and striving to help others.’
People who rely on Todd – including his mother and the many people employed by his television shows – will be harmed while he’s in prison, they argued.
They urged the judge to give him a prison sentence below the guideline range followed by supervised release and restitution.
Julie’s lawyers contended that she played a minimal role in the conspiracy and was not involved when the loans discussed in sentencing documents were obtained.
She has no prior convictions, is an asset to her community and has ‘extraordinary family obligations,’ her lawyers wrote, as they asked for a sentence of probation, restitution and community service.
