Shortly after 5:30 p.m., he was transferred to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

The 62-year-old, who owns Myrtle Beach Safari in Horry County, currently has no charges and a mugshot is not yet available as of 8 p.m. Friday.

The FBI told a local ABC affiliate that it could not provide more details pending a hearing. However, a date and time for a hearing has not yet been set.

Antle has faced criticism for its operations over the years due to the numerous celebrity visits to its facility.

He was charged with illegal wildlife trafficking in Virginia in October 2020 after an investigation found evidence he had trafficked lion cubs between South Carolina and Virginia.

Antle also faces 13 misdemeanor charges related to the lion cub trade.

“I am terribly shocked and disappointed by the charges that the Commonwealth of Virginia has filed against me and how they have attempted to implicate my daughters in this matter,” Antle told TMZ at the time.

“I categorically reject any act or behavior that could ever be considered ‘cruelty to animals.'”

He is due to appear in court in July on those charges.

There is currently no indication that Antle’s arrest has anything to do with his previous charges.

In addition to his struggles with the law, Antle came under scrutiny during the show because of his love life.

While at Tiger King, a former Antle employee claimed the animal trainer had a “harem of wives,” which he denies.

He previously addressed claims he has more than one wife, saying they are completely false.

“I’m a dating guy,” he said at the time. “I live alone in my house.”

“I’ve got a few girlfriends now and they certainly know about each other, but I’m by no means married to anyone or have a ‘harem’ as they suggest.”
