BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Discovery Channel has canceled the reality TV show “Sons of Guns.”
The move comes after the star Will Hayden was arrested on an aggravated rape charge. Authorities in Louisiana say Hayden was arrested Tuesday on charges of raping a child.
He had already been facing child molestation charges and charges of aggravated crime against nature stemming from his arrest in August. His bond is set at $250,000.
A Discovery Channel spokeswoman says the show is being shut down because of what the network describes as the “serious and horrific nature of the charges” against Hayden.
