Former Glee star Mark Salling was arrested this morning in Los Angeles for investigation of possessing child pornography.

The 33-year-old actor was cuffed and taken into custody after a warrant was served at his home in the Sunland, CA area.

Salling was investigated by the LAPD’s internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

He is best known for starring as bad-boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman on TV’s Glee, which ran on Fox from 2009 until 2015.

He shared a Screen Actors Guild award with the cast in 2010, when they won for outstanding TV comedy ensemble.

Salling is also a musician and released his debut album “Pipe Dreams” in 2010.

According to People Magazine:

“He was taken into custody this morning for possession of child porn,” Officer Aaron Jefferson of the Los Angeles Police Department tells PEOPLE.

The actor is getting booked in downtown L.A.”

TMZ adds:

Our sources say an ex-girlfriend of Salling’s tipped off cops and they investigated before the raid to make sure it wasn’t a revenge allegation.

Salling has had his share of legal problems. In 2013 he was sued by a woman who claimed he committed sexual battery on her by forcing sex without a condom. Salling denied the charge and the case settled.

According to TMZ, “hundreds of images were found on Saling’s computer of “children…younger than 15 and 16 year old.”
