FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Former reality TV Star Josh Duggar is being held in a northwest Arkansas jail after being arrested by federal authorities.

It’s unclear what charges he may face. Duggar was being held at the Washington County jail, after being arrested by U.S. marshals, according to the jail website.

The Marshals Service referred questions to the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, which declined to comment.

Duggar, 33, starred on TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” until it was pulled from the network in 2015 over revelations Duggar had molested four of his sisters and a babysitter.
