Kyle is required to return back to court on Monday, March 20, according to public citation records regarding the arrest.

The father-of-one — who lost custody of his daughter, Chloe, in 2013 due to both legal and substance abuse issues — was arrested just two months after his father, Todd, and stepmom, Julie Chrisley, began their lengthy prison sentences for several accounts of fraud.

The Chrisley patriarch was granted full custody of his granddaughter Chloe after her mother Angela was arrested for filing a fraudulent Medicaid application in 2016. At the time, Todd, Julie and Angela all had partial shared custody of the little girl, now 10.

Todd and Julie's daughter, Savannah Chrisley, received full custody of her niece in November 2022 — the same month her parents were given their prison sentences.

Savannah, 25, additionally has custody of her 16-year-old brother, Grayson, and has previously opened up about difficulties she's faced raising two minors.

The television personality revealed during her Tuesday, January 31, "Unlocked" podcast episode that she struggles raising Grayson and Chloe “because I am not my mother; because she is the kindest, most amazing person I have met."

"And I always said, ‘If I was half of her, I would be OK.’ And I guess in moments like these, I guess I’m more like my mom than I realize, because I’m getting through it," Savannah concluded at the time.
