As Radar reported, the former 19 And Counting star was placed on a federal hold at the Washington County jail in Arkansas on Thursday. The 33-year-old's bail was also denied. 

Interestingly enough, Anna Duggar came out swinging when a troll came for her man and the family's finances on social media last week. The disgraced ex-TLC star already has six children and his wife shocked everyone when she revealed the couple is once again expecting.

“How do you afford all those kids? Does Josh even work?” the person wrote, to which Anna wasted no time shooting back. "Yes, my husband is a diligent worker and provides well for our family,” she responded.

While details surrounding Josh Duggar's current arrest are scarce, this isn't the first time he's been in trouble. 

In 2015, he stepped down from his role as The Family Research Council after he was accused of sexually molesting five young girls -- including four of his sisters and a babysitter -- when he was just 14 years old.

“In good faith I cannot allow Family Research Council to be impacted by mistakes I made as a teenager, so I am resigning as Executive Director of FRC Action,” Josh Duggar said in a statement at the time. “I will continue to pray for the advancements of the causes we believe in and I hope that in the days ahead you will pray for me and Anna as we seek God to discover the next chapter of our lives in His service.”

As for 19 And Counting, TLC was forced to pull the show that year due to the shocking allegations.
