Glee star arrested over hundreds of child porn images

GLEE star Mark Salling has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography, the Los Angeles Police Department says.

Salling, 33, who played brash high school football player Noah "Puck" Puckerman on the hit US TV show about an unlikely school choir, was taken into custody in the Sunland neighbourhood north of Los Angeles, LAPD officer Liliana Preciado said.

The Glee actor's residence was searched by LAPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force earlier this morning (U.S time) where they allegedly found hundreds of indecent images of young children.

Gossip website TMZ reports that the police were tipped off by one of Mark's ex-girlfriends.

He is now allegedly being held in Los Angeles' Downtown jail waiting for the charges to be made against him.

It is not the first time this year that the actor has been in hot water, after he was previously sued by ex-girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela for sexual battery.

She claimed he forced her to have unprotected sex with him and then later, when she confronted him over his actions, he allegedly pushed her to the ground and caused injury to her knees.

The pair settled the case earlier this year for a reported $2.7 million and whilst the sexual battery case was dropped, Mark admitted to causing her to fall and injure herself through negligence.
