New Charge Filed Against Ex-Star Of Reality Show
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — New rape charges have been filed against Will Hayden, the former star of the reality TV show, "Sons of Guns."
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office says a woman reported Hayden raped her 22 years ago. Deputies say the woman was 12 at the time of alleged attack, which happened while she was staying with Hayden and his family.
Hayden was initially booked Aug. 8 with child molestation. He posted $150,000 bond but was re-arrested Aug. 26 for aggravated rape against the same victim. He was being held on $250,000 bond when the new forcible rape charges were filed Monday.
Bail on the new charge hasn't been set.
The Discovery Channel canceled "Sons of Guns" after Hayden's Aug. 26 arrest.
It's not immediately clear whether Hayden has an attorney.
