AceShowbiz - Mark Salling, of "Glee" fame, was arrested on Tuesday, December 29 for possession of child pornography. The 33-year-old actor was taken into custody after the Los Angeles Police Department's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force raided his home on Sunday on a warrant.
LAPD officer Liliana Preciado confirmed that Salling was arrested in Sunland, California and his bail was set at $20,000. According to sheriff's department records, he paid the bail at around 2:30 P.M. and was set to attend a court session on January 22, 2016. No other details were released.
Salling is best known as Puck on the hit FOX sitcom. He was a regular on the show's first four seasons and a recurring in the last two. After the series ended, he reportedly had been filming "Adi Shankar's Gods and Secrets" and was putting together his own TV series. "It's a musical with original music so we had to record a whole 13-song record for that and write the episodes around the songs," he told THR.
Salling had a criminal past. In January 2013, ex-girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela sued him for sexual battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence for forcing her to have unprotected sex with him in March 2011. Gorzela came to his home to confront him only to find the actor in bed with another woman. During an argument, he allegedly pushed her to the ground and she hit her head. Gorzela eventually dropped the case after he paid her about $2.7 million.
