Will Hayden, the star of Discovery’s “Sons of Guns,” was arrested on Saturday, Aug. 9 in Louisiana on charges of child molestation.
According to the East Baton Rouge’s sheriff department website, Hayden was arrested on counts of molestation of a juvenile and crime against nature. His bond was set at $150,000. Hayden was released on Sunday, Aug. 10 after posting the bond.
Hayden spoke with TMZ after being released. He says his ex-girlfriend, who is the mother of one of his children who he is now raising with his current wife, told police a week before that he molested their daughter. The daughter was interviewed by Child Protective Services and then returned home.
When asked why the ex would accuse him of child molesting, TMZ writes that Hayden claimed she “did it in retaliation for him ending their relationship.”
Discovery has no comment about the arrest.
