Kyle Chrisley struggles to find a lawyer

Following the arrest, Kyle was released from Rutherford County Adult Detention Center after posting $3,000 bail. However, it appears he is now having trouble finding a lawyer to defend himself, following the incident.

After attending Smyrna Municipal Court in Tennessee, regarding the assault charges; he asked Judge Brittany S. Stevens to have the case adjourned. The reason for the adjournment is so that Kyle can have “more time” to find a suitable lawyer.
