Reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley were indicted on Tuesday by a grand jury on tax evasion charges by the Northern District of Georgia. The 12-count indictment alleges the Chrisleys committed bank fraud and wire fraud conspiracy, among other offenses.

The married couple are stars of the USA Network reality series “Chrisley Knows Best.” Before the indictment was issued, Todd Chrisley took to Instagram to deny the claims, implying the charges are based on evidence presented to investigators by a disgruntled former employee.

“Chrisley Knows Best” has aired on the USA Network since 2014 for 7 seasons. A spin-off, “Growing up Chrisley,” featuring children Chase and Savannah, premiered in April.
