TV personality Todd Chrisley's sister-in-law, Pamela Chrisley, has been arrested for allegedly trying to extort money from the 46-year-old Chrisley Knows Best star.
Pamela was arrested March 4 and charged with extortion and 2nd degree harassment, the Oconee County South Carolina Sheriff's Office confirmed to ET on Tuesday. Her total bond was $11,092.50 -- $10,000 for blackmail or extortion, and $1,092.50 for second degree harassment. She was booked and released on the same day.
Pamela is married to Todd's brother, Randy Chrisley. Todd commented on the arrest on Instagram, posting Pamela's mugshot.
"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," Todd claims. "Our family has endured this harassment for many months and had to stay quiet 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."
"It's truly a shame when folks think extortion is a way to make a living, but thankfully law enforcement has done their job well...#Godisgood," Todd also tweeted this past Friday, the day of Pamela's arrest.

The news of Pamela’s arrest comes as Todd and his wife, Julie Chrisley, and their children -- Savannah, Chase, Lindsie, and Grayson -- return to the USA network with the fourth season of their hit reality series on Tuesday, March 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
ETonline caught up with the Chrisley patriarch in November 2014, when he talked about his kids' constant drama, as seen on the show.
"I don't know that they're trying to test me -- I think that they truly want to do some of this stuff," he explained. "I think I have raised thinking children and for that I'm blessed. And at the same token, for that I am cursed."
