The Duggar stories just keep getting more serious. Despite the reports that the family is being investigated by police, a new source claims that the Duggar family hired cops to secure the family when they’re off duty. These officers were apparently paid $25 per hour and worked at two, separate locations.
All of the drama stems from the news that eldest son Josh Duggar admitted to sexually molesting five, underage girls. TLC has pulled the family’s show, 19 Kids and Counting, from its schedule, new episodes and old, indefinitely. From the time that news broke, the Arkansas family has found themselves in pot after pot of hot water.
According to InTouch magazine, Steve Neild (a security firm executive) and Joey McCormick (interim police chief in Tonitown, Arkansas, where the Duggars live) exchanged emails allowing this off-duty security to be performed. Apparently, the Duggars also bought a “decoy police car” to park on their lawn. They also have a close relationship with the local police. Their second oldest son, John David, volunteers for the local department.
