Arkansas judge orders reality TV star’s record destroyed

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas police say they’ve destroyed a record outlining a nearly decade-old investigation into reality TV star Josh Duggar.

Springdale Police spokesman Scott Lewis said a judge had ordered the 2006 offense report to be destroyed. The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, which obtained it before its destruction, reports Duggar in 2002 and 2003 was accused of fondling five underage girls when he was a minor.

The Washington-based Family Research Council said Thursday that Duggar resigned as executive director of its legislative action arm. The 27-year-old appears on the TLC reality show “19 Kids and Counting.”

Duggar issued an apology Thursday on Facebook for unspecified bad behavior as a youth. Neither Duggar nor his father, former state Rep. Jim Bob Duggar, returned calls for comment.
