Kyle Chrisley, the son of reality TV star Todd Chrisley, is no longer facing criminal charges related to an alleged death threat against his estranged wife. Prosecutors in Georgia have dropped the case, citing a lack of cooperation from the victim.
The incident dates back to January 2019 when Alexus Chrisley claims that Kyle threatened to kill her via text message. She reported the incident to authorities, leading to a warrant for Kyle’s arrest. The charges were later dropped due to the victim’s refusal to cooperate. However, the case was reopened when Kyle was arrested on drug charges in Oklahoma in May 2019.
During the Oklahoma arrest, police discovered the outstanding warrant in Georgia and added it to his list of charges. Kyle spent several months in custody in both states before settling the drug charges with a plea deal.
Kyle’s legal troubles didn’t end there, however. In March 2023, he was arrested for felony aggravated assault in Tennessee after allegedly brandishing a knife during a fight.
Despite these legal setbacks, Kyle says he’s happy to put the Georgia case behind him. In a statement to TMZ, he says the charges being dropped have “been a long time coming” and that he’s looking forward to moving on from that part of his life.
The Chrisley family rose to fame with their reality show, “Chrisley Knows Best,” which aired on the USA Network from 2014 to 2021. The series followed Todd Chrisley and his family as they navigated life in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to Kyle, the family includes Todd’s wife, Julie, and their other children, Savannah, Chase, and Grayson.
Throughout the course of the show, the family faced numerous scandals and controversies, including financial troubles, legal issues, and a bitter feud with Todd’s estranged son, Lindsie. Despite the drama, the show remained popular with viewers and was a staple of USA’s programming for several years.
Despite the show’s success, Todd and his family have faced numerous legal troubles over the years. In 2019, Todd and his wife were indicted on multiple counts of fraud and tax evasion, to which they pleaded not guilty. The case is still ongoing.
Regardless of the outcome, it’s clear that the Chrisley family has a knack for making headlines, both good and bad. And while Kyle may have dodged a legal bullet this time around, it remains to be seen what the future holds for him and his family.
