'Sons of Guns' star arrested for allegedly raping his 12-year-old daughter



By RYAN GORMAN

The star of a hit reality television show has reportedly been arrested for repeatedly raping his own 12-year-old daughter.

"Sons of Guns" star Will Hayden, 44, was arrested Tuesday in Louisiana by U.S. Marshals and charged with aggravated rape of a child – his second arrest in as many weeks for child molestation.

Hayden's daughter told authorities that he orally and vaginally raped her on an almost-daily basis since March 2013, TMZ reported, citing arrest documents.

She was only 11-years-old when he reportedly took her virginity.

"Don't tell them nothing, because I'm all you got," the young girl told police her father said, according to the affidavit.

Hayden was originally arrested two weeks ago near Baton Rouge on a charge of suspicion of child molestation.

He was released on a $150,000 bond and claimed to TMZ at the time that the child's mother – his ex-girlfriend – was lying in a vindictive attempt to get back at him after the breakdown of their relationship.

The Discovery Channel show, centered on the gun making business Red Jacket Firearms outside Baton Rogue, has since been cancelled.

"Red Jacket Firearms LLC has initiated and received full legal separation as an entity, from William M. Hayden," the statement read. "With heavy hearts, we will be continuing to operate and ensure the fulfillment of new customer orders, back orders and to provide support to those affected by these new developments."

"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," Discovery rep Lori Goldberg told AOL News.

An AOL search of Discovery's website revealed all evidence of the show's existence has been scrubbed from public view.

When asked how long ago that happened, Goldberg said: "all I have is the statement, good bye."

A Facebook post from Stephanie Hayden, the accused child rapist's daughter, shot down rumors of the show's demise. That has been deleted since appearing in a Fox News article.

Hayden remains in federal custody.
