FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Reality TV star Josh Duggar was arrested Thursday by the U.S. Marshals Service in Arkansas, booking records show.

The exact charges were not immediately known but must be serious as Duggar is being held without bail at a Washington County jail.

In 2019, Homeland Security raided a car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas linked to Duggar. It is unclear if today’s arrest is connected to that investigation.

Duggar starred on TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting.” Revelations that Duggar had molested five girls between 2002 and 2003 and had been a member of the website Ashley Madison led to the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting on July 16, 2015.
