Playing LAPD: 'Glee' Star Mark Salling Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography

Glee star Mark Salling was arrested on Tuesday on a felony possession charge of child pornography, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to ET.

The 33-year-old actor was booked at the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles, with bail set at $20,000. Salling was later released at 2:26 p.m. after posting bail.

LAPD confirmed that they obtained a search warrant and in conjunction with Homeland Security, arrived around 7 a.m. on Tuesday morning at Salling's home in the Shadow Hills area of Los Angeles.  After receiving a tip from a "concerned person," police say they found images of child pornography.

This isn't the first time Salling has had legal troubles. In January 2013, his ex-girlfriend, Roxanne Gorzela, alleged in a lawsuit that sexual battery, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress occurred while the two were dating. Specifically, Gorzela claimed that Salling engaged in unprotected sex with her when she expressly communicated to him that he wear a condom while they were intimate.

The two later settled the case in March 2015, and Salling was ordered by a judge to pay $2.7 million to Gorzela, per the terms of the settlement.

ET has reached out to Salling's rep for comment.
