‘Sons of Guns’, featured on the Discovery Channel, has been cancelled after one of the stars, William Hayden, has been arrested on charges of child rape. See below…
Reality show ‘Sons of Guns’ has been cancelled following the arrest of star William Hayden on child rape charges.
In a statement to TMZ on Wednesday, a Discovery channel spokesman wrote: ‘Given the serious and horrific nature of the charges against Will Hayden, we have decided to halt further production of Sons of Guns and cancel the series.’
The series focused on the custom firearm store in Louisiana that Hayden founded.
Hayden was arrested yesterday and charged with the aggravated rape of a girl who was just 11-years-old at the time of the alleged offence.
The 49-year-old was apprehended as a fugitive on Tuesday in Livingston Parish, Louisiana, two weeks after being accused of child molestation, according to East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.
The girl is now backing up the allegations and says she was orally and vaginally raped almost daily, but did not report it because he threatened her physically.
She told investigators that Hayden took her virginity in March 2013 when she was 11-years-old.
The alleged victim did not want to disclose any information at first because Hayden allegedly intimidated her and said: ‘Don’t tell them nothing, because I’m all you got.’
Hayden, a former Marine whose show airs on the Discovery Channel, was also arrested on August 9 for child molestation.
