Salling, who played Noah "Puck" Puckerman on Glee, has been arrested for allegedly possessing child porn, according to reports from Crime Watch Daily and TMZ.

According to Crime Watch Daily, LAPD officers arrested the 33-year-old on December 29. The report claims that the police department's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force obtained a search warrant against Salling and served him with it on Tuesday.

The officers reportedly searched Salling's home in Sunland, CA. They found "hundreds of images" on his computer, according to TMZ. An LAPD officer confirmed to People that Salling has been taken into police custody.

TMZ notes that this isn't the first time the actor has encountered legal issues. In 2013, a woman sued Salling for sexual battery. The case was settled, and Salling denied the charges.

Refinery29 has reached out to Salling's rep for comment on this story and will update when we obtain a response.
