Ahead of tonight's season premiere, Chrisley Knows Best's Todd Chrisley broke some rather crazy news to fans.

Chrisley Knows Best Promotes a New Season
Pamela Chrisley's Mug Shot

It appears that his sister-in-law, Pamela was arrested for 2nd degree harrassment, blackmail and extortion.

"Folks, today is a sad day for our family," Chrisley wrote on Instagram, including a mug shot of Pamela.

"If you notice this individual shares our last name and is married to my brother Randy.  Pamela has been involved in a scheme with other individuals in GA and SC to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars from our family because my brother filed for divorce from her.

"Our family has endured this harassment for many months and had to stay quite to let law enforcement from two states to do their job.

"Today is the first day of many to come and additional charges but our family will persevere and move forward together , we are at peace now that we know who has been behind this tragic situation and ask for your prayers and support for healing at this time."

Apparently there was some suspicion about Chrisley's son-in-law being involved.

Not so, said the patriarch.

"Let's be perfectly clear, the extortion attempts belong to Pamela Bryson Chrisley, Not my son-n-law Will," Chrisley wrote.

"He's a decent young man, father and husband with no interest in such trashy and illegal activities."

Pamela's attorney, Delane Rosemond denies these charges, accusing Chrisley of plugging his show.

"These salacious allegations of extortion of monies from a family that is involved in reality TV known as Chrisley Knows Best unfortunately has permeated Oconee County," Rosemond's statement read, according to Us Weekly.

"As you may know the ratings for the Chrisley’s reality TV show has dropped tremendously over the last couple of viewing seasons and this is simply a ploy to increase their ratings."

On that note, the new season of Chrisley Knows Best premieres tonight at 10/9 c on USA!
