BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Discovery Channel has canceled reality TV star Will Hayden’s popular “Sons of Guns” show after his arrest on an aggravated rape charge.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office says Hayden was arrested Tuesday on a charge accusing him of raping a child. His bond was set at $250,000. He was already facing child molestation and aggravated crime against nature charges stemming from his Aug. 9 arrest.

Discovery Channel spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg said in an emailed statement Wednesday that production of the show was halted and the series canceled due to “the serious and horrific nature of the charges” against Hayden.

The show was about Hayden, his adult daughter and their company, Red Jacket Firearms.

Hayden’s agent did not immediately return a call Wednesday for comment.
