A 33-year-old father who was accused of sexually assaulting five girls as a teen has been arrested in connection to a raid on his now-closed car dealership.
Josh Duggar of the reality TV show 19 Kids And Counting reportedly turned himself to US Marshals in Arkansas on federal charges.
He was transferred to federal hold at Washington County Jail without bond.
According to The Sun, Duggar’s detention is related to a 2019 Homeland Security raid on his car dealership in Arkansas.
However, no charges were brought against him at that time.
This marks the reality star’s latest conflict with the law after his own father reported him to authorities in 2016 for allegedly assaulting five young girls when he was a teen.
In 2015, Duggar was also sued by a porn star for allegedly assaulting her during sex.
The father of six is currently in the middle of another legal battle after a civil lawsuit was filed against him for real estate fraud.
Duggar’s arrest comes only days after he and his wife announced that they were expecting their seventh child.
Anna shared their news to Instagram with a video of herself and her husband embracing in a field with all of their children running around them.
The caption for the clip reads: “It’s a GIRL!!!!!! We are overjoyed to announce baby seven is on the way and we can’t wait to hold her in our arms this fall!”
His family are said to be ‘extremely concerned’ but not surprised about his arrest.
A source told The Sun: “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.”
