Will Hayden, star of Discovery Channel’s hit series “Sons of Guns” was arrested for child molestation last Friday night by East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputies, FOX411 has confirmed.
The arrest came after a woman reportedly accused Hayden of molesting his own daughter.
The reality star was released the following day after posting a $150,000 bond, his lawyer Frank Holthaus told us.
Holthaus said the allegations were made by a fired ex-employee seeking revenge.
“I believe [the allegations] are completely false,” he said.
Hayden has since returned back to work.
FOX411 reached out to the Discovery Channel who had no comment except to say that Hayden’s reality show is currently not on the air.
“Sons of Guns” first debuted on Discovery Channel in January 2011. The series follows the staff of Red Jacket Firearms as they make custom weapons. Hayden is the founder and owner of the business.
