BATON ROUGE, La - William Hayden has appeared on Discovery Channels "Sons of Guns,” since the show's inception in 2011.
He might have a problem making the latest taping.
Hayden was arrested last week in Louisiana and charged with aggravated rape and molestation after an underage girl came forward with accusations.
The girl claims she lost her virginity to Hayden when first raped her in March of 2013. She says the abuse continued, but she didn’t tell anyone because Hayden threatened to harm her.
She says he told her, “don't tell them nothing, because I'm all you got.”
Hayden told TMZ the accusations were false and blamed his breakup with an old girlfriend.
Hayden’s business, Red Jacket Firearms, released the following statement.
"We acknowledge that allegations of child abuse were made against Mr. Will Hayden," the company statement read nearly two weeks ago. "This was reported by someone intent on smearing his reputation."
