Season 10 of “Chrisley Knows Best” continued on USA Network Monday and saw Todd Chrisley and his mom try and combat their road rage after the latter got pulled over by a police officer for her foul-mouthed tirades behind the wheel.
At the beginning of the episode, which aired on Monday, Elizabeth “Faye” Chrisley — who is affectionately known by the family and fans as Nanny Faye — was seen driving her grandson Chase home from lunch.
While the two were initially shown disagreeing over the pronunciation of General Tso’s Chicken, things got a little more heated in the car when Faye began getting beeped by a driver behind her.
“Would you look at this driver behind me?” she asked Chase before rolling down the car window and yelling at the other drivers, as well as flipping them off.
“Look at this son of a bitch that just cut right in front of me. I’m gonna knock her out,” she quipped as Chase held his head in his hands.
Sitting down for a piece-to-camera interview together, Chase asked his grandmother: “Do you think you’re a good driver?”
“One of the best,” she responded, unfazed.
“Nanny, you are a bad driver,” he told her. “You have road rage, you have anger issues.”
Faye brushed off his comments, remarking: “Oh no, I don’t. When I have road rage, it’s only when I’m on the road.”
Later on in the episode, Chase took another car ride with his grandmother and discovered that she had come up with an ingenious plan to have other drivers listen to her: she had a megaphone with her.

However, even with the megaphone to help, Faye couldn’t help but yell out expletives to her fellow drivers in the neighborhood.
This eventually caught the attention of a police patrol car, and the pair were pulled over by a neighborhood cop who told the potty-mouthed octogenarian that “the use of a megaphone is a noise violation.”
“Really? I mean, I really don’t think that’s a thing,” she challenged him.
“It is a thing,” the officer responded.
Todd wasn’t best pleased when he received a letter from the community board about his mom’s noise violation. Chase decided to solve the problem of his grandmother’s road rage by staging an intervention, which he also forced Todd to join in.
Chase’s attempts to get the pair to “cool the road rage and mellow out” worked to a certain degree.
Asked what the new Todd would do after being cut off by another driver, the real estate mogul replied calmly: “I don’t yell. I get the tag number, go home, and plan my revenge. Was that good?”
“I mean, I guess that’s progress,” Chase commented. “At least we’re avoiding conflict at first.”

At the time, the Chrisleys were living in the affluent neighborhood of Belle Meade in Nashville’s Brentwood suburb in a $3.4 million house that was previously owned by NHL hockey player Mike Ribeiro. Faye, meanwhile, was living in another property close by within the private luxury community.
The episode, which was filmed sometime in 2022, made no mention of Todd and Julie’s legal troubles. The reality television stars were convicted in June of defrauding banks out of more than $30 million by providing fake financial statements making them look wealthier than they were.
Their sentences were announced in November. Todd, who prosecutors called the “mastermind” of the couple’s years-long tax and bank fraud scheme, was sentenced to 12 years at Federal Prison Camp Pensacola.
Julie, who prosecutors believed played a lesser role, was sentenced to seven and reported to the Federal Medical Center (FMC) Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky. They began their sentences on January 17.
