Discovery Channel cancelled the show “Sons of Guns” after one of its stars, Will Hayden, was arrested for a second time, adding aggravated rape of a 12-year-old to his list of charges, Fox 411 reports.
“Given the serious and horrific nature of the charges against Will Hayden, we have decided to halt further production of ‘Sons of Guns’ and cancel the series,” the network said in a statement.
Also, Red Jacket Firearms LLC announced that it has separated itself from Hayden, who owned the company.
According to police documents obtained by the news station, Hayden is accused of raping a minor “almost daily” since March 2013 and taking her virginity when she was 11 years old.
During an interview with detectives, the alleged victim said she did not report the sexual abuse because she was afraid Hayden would hurt her. The most recent abuse of the now-12-year-old girl occurred during July 2014.
Also from the documents, the alleged victim claims that Hayden told her “don’t tell them nothing because I’m all you got.”
Hayden is still being held in the East Baton Rough Parish Prison. He has a $250,000 bond. U.S. Marshals in East Baton Rouge Parish arrested him on Aug. 26 around 3 p.m. while serving a warrant issued by EBRP 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.
