LOS ANGELES, USA – US actor Mark Salling, best known for his role on the musical comedy series Glee, was arrested in Los Angeles on Tuesday, December 29 for alleged possession of child pornography, police said.

Police specializing in investigating Internet crimes against children searched the home of the 33-year-old Salling in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Sunland early Tuesday and took him into custody, police spokesman Ricardo Hernandez told Agence France-Presse (AFP).

Salling – who played bad boy Noah Puckerman on the Fox series – was later released on $20,000 bail, and must appear in court January 22.  

Celebrity news website TMZ reported that authorities had found more than 1,000 images of “child sexual exploitation” on Salling’s computer. Police also seized mobile phones and other electronic devices from the home, TMZ said.

A spokesman for the actor did not reply to AFP requests for comment on the case. – Rappler.com
