Sons of Guns star Will Hayden has been rearrested for sexually abusing his 12-year old daughter – and now his show has been cancelled as a result.
Hayden was initially arrested two weeks ago in Louisiana after his ex-girlfriend told officers of the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Department that he had been sexually molesting their daughter since last year, when she was 11.
After he posted bail, Hayden told TMZ that his ex made up the story so as to hit him back for ending their relationship. However, arrest documents obtained by the website showed that his daughter backed up the allegations, saying that he took her virginity and raped her almost daily.
This statement by the victim apparently led to Hayden’s rearrest on Tuesday. He is still in custody on aggravated child rape charges.
Meanwhile, Discovery channel has announced that they will no longer continue filming Sons of Guns due to the child rape mess.
‘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,’ a rep for the channel told TMZ in a statement.
The show ran for 5 seasons.
