“Sons of Guns” star Will Hayden was arrested on child molestation charges, according to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office. The owner of the firearms business behind the hit Discovery Channel series was arrested and booked in East Baton Rouge, Louisiana, early Saturday.
Because of the nature of the arrest, further details on the charges have been sealed by court order.
Hayden was released the same day after posting $150,000 bail. The reality star was also charged with “a crime against nature,” said Casey Rayborn Hicks, public information director of the Sheriff’s Office.
Hayden is the founder of Red Jacket Firearms in Louisiana. “Sons of Guns” follows Hayden and those who run the custom weapons company. The show ended its fifth season in May.
Representatives for Discovery Channel had no comment on the incident, while calls to Hayden’s lawyer have not been returned.
