PHOTOS: Glee Actor, Mark Salling, Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

Oh boy… that’s the sound of someone’s career ending with a loud thud. Glee actor, Mark Salling, is pictured here cowering in the back seat of a car, trying to hide his face from the media. He was just released on $20,000 bail after being arrested on child pornography charges. Looks like he’ll be singing a different tune now. Earlier today, a search of Salling’s computer allegedly yielded pornographic images depicting children under the age of 10. Authorities said they found more than a thousand images depicting children in sexual situations, many of them younger than age 10. Lt. Andrea Grossman, of the LAPD, described some of the lewd images depicting grade school-aged girls as ‘disturbing,’ reported the New York Daily News. Possession of more than 600 images can carry a punishment of up to five years in prison. Sources said police were 100% certain they would find child pornography in Salling’s home based on a tip they had received from his ex-girlfriend and additional evidence.

From the Daily Mail:

New photos emerged this morning showing Glee star Mark Salling cowering in the backseat of a relative’s car and struggling to hide his face from the glare of cameras on his way home from jail after his arrest on child pornography charges.

The 33-year-old actor was freed from Los Angeles Downtown jail on $20,000 bail Tuesday after being arrested for possessing child pornography during a raid on his Sunland, California, home executed by the LAPD’s internet Crimes Against Children Task Force unit.

In first images of Salling to have emerged in the wake of his arrest, the former Glee cast member is seen lying in a fetal position in the back of a car and covering his face with his hands.

Crime Watch Daily aired the allegations this week. Police used a battering ram to get into his house because he refused access to them. The police seized his computer and other electronic devices, once again after Salling refused to give them his password. He was investigated by police after a tip from an ex-girlfriend. They wanted to make sure it wasn’t just for revenge and evidently it wasn’t. Salling’s arrest on child porn charges could potentially jeopardize his appearance in the new film Gods and Secrets. Producers of the movie, which is currently in post-production, are considering cutting Salling from the film entirely and re-shooting his scenes with a different actor. Salling shot to fame playing Noah ‘Puck’ Puckerman in the hit FOX series Glee. He first appeared in 2008 and was a regular until season five. Tuesday’s arrest was not the star’s first brush with the law. In March, he allegedly reached a $2.7 million settlement with a woman who had sued him for sexual battery. In 2011, Roxanne Gorzela claimed he forced her to have unprotected sex and then when she confronted him several days later, he pushed her to the ground injuring her knees. It was reported that the case was settled midway through trial after Gorzela dropped the sexual battery claim. Salling admitted to negligently causing her to fall and injure herself. She is not believed to have been the woman who tipped off the authorities. This guy grew up in a good Christian home and has now turned into a deviant. Way to go, bro.
