Josh Duggar Arrested by Federal Agents in Arkansas

Anna & Josh Duggar Are Expecting Baby No. 7

Federal agents have arrested former reality star Josh Duggar in his home state of Arkansas.

No details about the circumstances of the 33-year-old’s arrest have been released. U.S. Marshals detained Josh and placed him in federal custody at the Washington County Detention Center in the city of Fayetteville around 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 29, legal records show. No bail was set. The FBI had no immediate comment when reached by E! News.

Neither Josh nor his wife Anna Duggar, who recently announced she’s pregnant with their seventh child, have commented on his arrest.

Josh has faced legal trouble before but has never been charged with any crime. It is unclear if his past reported cases are related to his recent arrest.

In 2015, his extended family’s TLC reality show 19 Kids and Counting was famously canceled after an unearthed, expunged police report from 2006 stated that the reality star was accused of molesting five underage girls when he was a teenager. The victims included four of his sisters, including Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar. Their parents told Fox News that Josh, their eldest child, had admitted to inappropriately touching his sisters while they slept. He was never charged.
