'Glee' Star Mark Salling Arrested For Child Porn Possession

According to reports, former Glee star Mark Salling has been arrested on child porn possession charges. The TV show Crime Watch Daily first broke the news, which TMZ later reportedly confirmed, that the LAPD had searched Salling's home after obtaining a warrant. TMZ, which claims "hundreds of images" of child pornography were found on Salling's computer, reports that the actor is currently being questioned by police. (Salling's rep has yet to reply to Romper's request for comment.)

(Update: The Hollywood Reporter reports Salling posted bail, which was set for $20,000. He will appear in court on the charges on Jan. 22.)

This is the second time in 2015 that Salling made headlines for legal problems. In March came reports that Salling had settled a lawsuit filed by ex-girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela, who accused the actor of sexual battery and assault after he allegedly pushed her during a fight about his alleged refusal to wear a condom during a sexual encounter. Salling had denied the claims by Gorzela, telling E! News about the claims, "You hear about fraudulent lawsuits all the time ... Until it happens to you, you really don't grasp what it does, not to just you, but to your family, and you want the legal process to happen as fast as possible, but just... It takes time. I just want the chance to defend myself — and I will, vigorously."

Though the actor's legal troubles have attracted the spotlight, Salling's professional career has been relatively quiet since he famously played Puck on the popular Fox show. The actor does, however, boast a role in 2016's superhero TV movie Gods And Secrets, from director Adi Shankar, and has remained active in recent weeks on social media. And he's even posted photos of him hanging out with fellow former Glee stars, who have yet to speak out about Salling's reported arrest.

At this time, there are few other details surrounding Salling's reported arrest, but Glee fans are expressing shock.
