Josh Duggar Arrested, Being Held in Jail Without Bail in Arkansas, Wife Pregnant 7th Time
The U.S. Marshals Service told PEOPLE that former “19 Kids and Counting” TLC reality star Josh Duggar was arrested by Homeland Security, and is being held in a jail without bail in Washington County, Arkansas.
Duggar’s wife, Anna, is pregnant with their seventh child.
The online jail records do not show what Duggar has been arrested for, and TLC refused to comment.
An unidentified source told The Sun the arrested is related to the 2019 Homeland Security raid on his now-shuttered used car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas:
The family has known that this has been coming for weeks, and Josh has been preparing himself. They are praying together for Josh and Anna, who is standing by her husband as she always has. Family members are extremely concerned by what is happening and they just want to find out the truth. They know that this will put them in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, and are stunned they are having to go through this again. The family will be speaking out shortly and hope this in many ways will bring them closer together and even closer to God.
Duggar’s family defended him during a bizarre interview with Fox News host Megyn Kelly after it was revealed in 2015 that he had molested two of his sisters in 2006, but did not face any legal responsibility.
PEOPLE notes Duggar had another scandal following the molestation:
