Feds Arrest ’19 And Counting’ Star Josh Duggar

Josh Duggar, one of the stars of TLC’s family reality show 19 Kids and Counting the feds.

According to online records, Duggar was booked and placed on a federal hold Thursday afternoon at Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville. 


No details of his arrest have been released except that he is being held without bond.

The arrest comes five years after the reality star was accused of molesting five girls when he was 14 years old. Four out of the five accusers were his sisters.

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” he said in a statement at the time. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
