Mark Salling, best known for his portrayal of Noah "Puck" Puckerman on the hit show "Glee," has reportedly been arrested for possession of child pornography after the LAPD searched his home early Tuesday morning.

The LAPD confirmed that the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Unit served a search warrant at an address listed under the actor's name in Sunland, California, after Crime Watch Daily broke the news. Authorities arrived at the home around 7 a.m. local time, according to NBC News.

Earlier this year, Salling settled a sexual battery lawsuit with his former girlfriend, Roxanne Gorzela, who accused the star of having unprotected sexual contact with her despite her demands that he wear a condom in a 2013 complaint.

"You hear about fraudulent lawsuits all the time," Salling told E! News shortly after the suit was filed. "Until it happens to you, you really don't grasp what it does, not to just you, but to your family, and you want the legal process to happen as fast as possible, but just...It takes time. I just want the chance to defend myself—and I will, vigorously."
