Kyle’s arrest comes in the same year that his father and stepmother surrendered to separate federal prisons in Florida and Kentucky respectively on charges of tax evasion and defrauding community banks out of more than $30 million in fraudulent loans. The couple spent millions on designer brand clothes, luxury cars, and real estate, including two mansions in Nashville, Tennessee, reportedly worth about $9 million.
