The star of Discovery Channel's reality show 'Sons of Guns' says that the allegations were made by a fired ex-employee who is seeking revenge and are completely false.
Will Hayden, who stars on Discovery Channel's reality show "Sons of Guns", has been accused of inappropriately touching his daughter. Hayden was arrested for an alleged child molestation by East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies on Friday night, August 8. Hayden was released the next day after posting a $150,000 bond, his lawyer Frank Holthaus told FOX411.
The arrest came after a woman made the molestation report. According to the lawyer, the woman who is his ex-employee made the false report for revenge after getting fired. "I believe [the allegations] are completely false," Holthaus was quoted as saying.
According to a separate report by TMZ, Hayden's older daughter Stephanie also denied the alleged conduct. "There was never any impropriety in our home. He was and is a good father," she said.
"Sons of Guns", which shows Hayden's company Red Jacket Firearms as they make custom firearms, was first debuted in 2011. Hayden has returned to work after the arrest.
