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.
He later said in a statement he had acted "inexcusably" and said his parents "arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling." He later resigned from his job at Christian lobbying group Family Research Council. Following the scandal, Jill, Jessa and many other extended family members, not including Josh, went on to star on a TLC spinoff series, Counting On.
In November 2019, TMZ reported that Homeland Security agents raided Josh's office at an Arkansas car dealership in connection to a federal probe. He did not comment on the alleged incident.
His extended family later denied reports that their own home was targeted by the feds, adding, "To the best of our knowledge, it's also not true that any member of our family is the target of any investigation of any kind."
This is a developing story and E! News will update as we get more information on Josh's arrest.
Chris Pratt’s Son Jack Snuggles With Baby Lyla in Adorable Photo
Chris Pratt shared a rare photo of his two kids together, showing Anna Faris' son Jack cuddling on a balcony with Katherine Schwarzenegger's 8-month-old daughter Lyla.
One big happy family! Chris Pratt shared a precious pic of his latest daddy date with his kids, and he seems to be ensuring that his children from his two marriages grow up as close as can be by fostering a strong bond between them from day one.
The Jurassic World star, 41, was seen squeezing in some cuddles with them on the couch on Thursday, April 29, before breakfast.
Chris posted the selfie to his Instagram Story, showing him with bedhead and wearing a navy T-shirt on his balcony sofa. Next to him was baby Lyla, whom he welcomed in August with wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. His 8-month-old daughter appeared to be clutching a toy while facing Chris' 8-year-old son, Jack, who was pictured in a red shirt with his back to the camera.
The Guardians of the Galaxy actor captioned the post, "Baby time" with a check mark to start his day on the right note.
Both kids' faces were blocked for privacy as per usual, with Chris and Katherine trying to keep their baby out of the spotlight.
Katherine explained the reason behind her no photos policy during an interview with the Today show in March. "Obviously, I didn't grow up with social media being a thing at all, so it's a little bit different in that way just because I feel like we share so much in today's world," she explained. "But I think one of the greatest gifts that my parents ever gave me and my siblings is the gift of privacy and having a really normal upbringing, or as normal of an upbringing as possible."
Chris welcomed Jack in 2012 with his then-wife, Anna Faris, before they officially got divorced in 2018. The Mom alum is now engaged to cinematographer Michael Barrett, whom she admitted has one special quality she's never had in a partner before.
"I had never been confronted with intense eye contact actually... Sometimes it can be pretty hot," she revealed on the Unqualified podcast in March.
She went on to compare her current relationship to her experience with Chris and her first ex-husband, Ben Indra. "My two other marriages were with actors and I don't think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness," Anna said. "Or at least I didn't, being a proud person, and not wanting to reveal vulnerability."
Just yesterday, Anna shared a never-before-seen throwback picture of Jack, as she recounted his premature birth story in an effort to raise awareness for GAPPS (the Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth).
Of course, their big blended family also includes grandpa Arnold Schwarzenegger, who recently shared how he's faring as a grandfather. "Fantastic," he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live, while also giving insight into Katherine's new role as mom.
"I have never changed diapers on Lyla, because I think that Katherine is the expert gatekeeper. She just, whenever you touch the baby, says, 'Oh, my god! Oh, my god! Like this,'" the former governor continued. "I said, 'Katherine, come on, now. I've held enough children in my hands. I know exactly what I'm doing. I'm an expert in that stuff.' She just freaks out and does it. [But] I think it's natural."
