Federal authorities arrested Josh Duggar of "19 Kids and Counting" fame in Arkansas on Thursday night.

Authorities took Duggar, 33, into custody, where he is being held without bail, but officials have yet to release any information on pending charges.

What are the details?

According to BuzzFeed News, the eldest Duggar child was booked into Washington County Jail on Thursday afternoon.

"Washington County sheriff's officials referred questions about Duggar to the U.S. attorney's office, which did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' inquiries," the outlet reported.

The Washington County Jail also released information that Duggar was being held without bail for a federal agency. However, an official with the Federal Bureau of Investigation stated that the agency is not involved in the case.

According to KYTV-TV, the U.S. Marshals Service took Duggar into custody.

The station reported that Duggar is set to attend a Friday afternoon hearing.

What else?

TLC canceled "19 Kids and Counting" in 2015 after it was revealed that Duggar reportedly molested young girls when he was a teenager. Four of the young girls were reportedly his sisters.

That same year, Duggar made headlines after he admitted that he cheated on his wife, Anna, through an online dating site. He later admitted to having a pornography addiction.

In 2019, Duggar and his real estate company were sued.

Earlier this week, his wife, Anna, revealed that the two were expecting their seventh child.
