7:01 AM PT -- A rep for Penske tells us Chrisley does not, and has never worked for the company, despite the Smyrna Police Department's statement claiming he was an employee. Instead, we're told, he works for a company with office space near a Penske location.
6:49 PM PT -- Cops say Kyle Chrisley allegedly got into a physical fight with his supervisor at his job at Penske Truck Rental and brandished a "fixed blade."
Todd Chrisley's son, Kyle Chrisley, has serious legal trouble of his own -- although, his resulted in much less time behind bars -- so far, at least.
A rep for the Rutherford County Jail in Tennessee tells TMZ ... Kyle was arrested and booked for felony aggravated assault Tuesday, and was released after posting a $3,000 bond. We're told he was busted by Smyrna PD ... and looked none too pleased in his mug shot.
We're still working on details about what landed him in jail.
Kyle's arrest comes 2 months after his father started doing time in federal prison for bank fraud and tax evasion.
Todd is serving a 12-year sentence, while his wife, Julie, is doing 7 years.
Things have been tense between Todd and Kyle over the years ... with the former gaining custody of Kyle's daughter, Chloe. Kyle accused his father of using her for TV ratings, and for a while, things were nasty between them on "Chrisley Knows Best."
However, Kyle's said they mended fences, and he's asked the public not to judge.
We've reached out to cops for a report regarding Kyle's arrest ... so far, no word back.
