Will Hayden, owner of Red Jacket Firearms and star of the Discovery Channel show “Sons of Guns,” was arrested and booked this afternoon on charges stemming from an arrest earlier this month, local media reports.
U.S. Marshals in East Baton Rouge Parish arrested Hayden on Tuesday around 3 p.m. on charges of aggravated rape of a 12-year-old. The marshals were reportedly serving a warrant for his arrest issued by East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
On Aug. 9, Hayden was arrested and charged with molestation of a juvenile and crimes against nature. However, Hayden reportedly told the celebrity gossip publication TMZ that an ex-girlfriend told police that he molested their daughter.
Hayden denied the allegations and explained to TMZ that the woman did it in retaliation for breaking up with her.
He also said child protective services interviewed the girl and returned her to his home.
Other than the additional charges, the story has not been updated since the original arrest.
