Pamela Chrisley has been arrested after allegedly trying to extort money from her brother-in-law, Chrisley Knows Best star Todd Chrisley.

Court documents obtained by PEOPLE state that Pamela was taken into custody on Friday when she was charged with 2nd degree harassment and released the same day on $1,000 bond.

Part of her bail agreement was that she makes "no contact with victims for any reason or by any means, directly or indirectly," and "no electronic communications of any kind."

Fox Carolina report that according to incident reports, 43-year-old Pamela threatened to "sell a story to the National Enquirer that would hurt the Chrisley name unless “hush money” was deposited into her bank account."
