When Was Josh Duggar Arrested?
The Sun has exclusive knowledge that Josh, a 34-year-old reality star who was fired, was apprehended in Arkansas on April 29, 2021. According to a source, the incident is connected to the 2019 Homeland Security raid on his since-closed used car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas.
Homeland Security Investigations conducted an “ongoing federal investigation” at the lot in November 2019, but Josh hasn’t faced any charges up until now. According to a source who spoke exclusively to The Sun about Jim Bob, Michelle, and their 19 kids: “Josh has been preparing himself while the family has been aware of this for weeks.
“Together, they are praying for Josh and Anna, who continues to support her husband as she always has. “Family members simply want to learn the truth because they are so worried about what is going on.
“They are shocked that they have to go through this again, knowing that it will bring them unwanted attention. The family anticipates speaking out soon and believes that doing so will help them grow spiritually and in many other ways.
The timing of the arrest of Anna, who was carrying the couple’s seventh child, could not have been worse. Duggar was granted bail and released from custody on May 6th.
What Are the Scandals He Has Been Involved in?
Ashley Johnston, also known by her stage name Danica Dillon, accused Duggar of sexually assaulting her in November 2015.
In a lawsuit and interviews, Johnston accused him of choking, spitting, and calling her “worthless” during rough intercourse. She eventually dropped the lawsuit, despite Duggar’s constant denial of the allegations.
She claimed they met in March 2015 at a Philadelphia strip club where she worked, and Josh paid her $600 for lap dances before inviting her to his room.
According to the lawsuit, Johnston, 34, told The Sun in an exclusive interview that she has always told the truth about the alleged assault, which she described as “so intense” that it felt “like this guy tried to kill me.”
News broke months before Johnston accused Duggar of sexually assaulting her that the Duggars had paid for an Ashley Madison account. The then-27-year-old paid for a service that helps married people have affairs. He admitted to cheating on his wife and being a porn addict.
