A dad from "16 and Pregnant" tells TMZ, Child Protective Services in Arkansas took his two-year-old daughter away last night -- and he blames himself.
Josh Rendon -- who starred on season one -- tells us, he and his 20-year-old wife Ebony Jackson were arrested last night for child endangerment, and he's copping to his misdeeds ... saying, “It was fair for them to charge us with this. [Our house] wasn’t clean."
But that's an understatement -- a source close to the couple tells us, the house was covered in trash and infested with maggots.
According to the source, CPS received a complaint about the living conditions ... and took the child after inspecting the home.
CPS still has the kid -- but we're told Josh and Ebony are already working to get her back ... first step, cleaning up the atrocious mess.
