SMYRNA, Tenn. (WTVF) — Reality TV personality Kyle Chrisley turned himself in Tuesday after he was charged with aggravated assault in Smyrna.

Chrisley, 32, had a warrant out for his arrest after he allegedly brandished a "fixed blade" during an altercation at Penske Rental Truck on Enon Springs Road E in Smyrna, according to an arrest report from the Smyrna Police Department.

Chrisley threatened to stab and kill the victim, who is identified in the arrest warrant as his employer and supervisor. Detectives also noted in the arrest warrant that they observed injuries to the victim's head, neck and hand caused by Chrisley "striking him multiple times in the face and upper body."

Witnesses at the scene confirmed to investigators that Chrisley showed a knife and threatened to stab the victim.

Chrisley voluntarily appeared for booking Tuesday, and his bond was set at $3,000. He was taken to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.

Kyle Chrisley is the son of Todd Chrisley, both starring in the television reality program "Chrisley Knows Best," which debuted in 2014. Todd Chrisley was recently sentenced to 12 years in prison for fraud and tax evasion.
