Josh Duggar arrested by federal agents in Arkansas
April 29, former reality star Josh Duggar is arrested in his hometown in Arkansas.
No information was released about the circumstances of the 33-year-old’s arrest.
U.S. Marshals arrested Duggar and placed him in detention at the Washington County Hafttstrafe in the town of Fayetteville at about 1 p.m.
The FBI had no immediate comment when contacted!
Neither Duggar nor his wife Anna Duggar, who recently announced she is pregnant with their seventh child, commented on his arrest.
Duggar has previously faced legal trouble, but has never been charged with a crime. It is unclear whether his previous cases are related to his recent arrest.
The victims include four of his sisters, including Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar. His parents told Fox News that Duggar, their oldest son, had admitted to touching his sisters inappropriately while she slept.
Later in a statement he said he had acted “inexcusably,” and said his parents arranged for counseling for me and those affected by my actions.”
He later resigned from his job with the Christian lobby group Family Research Council.
In November 2019, Homeland Security agents raided Duggar’s office, but Duggar would not comment on the alleged incident.
His extended family later denied reports that his own home was targeted by the feds.
