‘Sons of Guns’ reality show star Will Hayden charged with raping another child
Gun shop owner and reality TV star Will Hayden has been charged with another count of rape.
The founder of Red Jacket Firearms and star of the now-canceled “Sons of Guns” program on the Discovery Channel was arrested last month in the aggravated rape of a 14-year-old relative.
Hayden was charged Monday in the rape of a 12-year-old girl nearly 22 years ago in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, area.
The victim in that case came forward after Hayden’s arrest was reported.
The woman, now 34, told police Hayden sexually assaulted her while staying with her family at their apartment.
She said Hayden smoked marijuana with her and then raped her.
Hayden was arrested Aug. 8 on child molestation and aggravated crime against nature charge.
The gun shop he founded cut ties to him after he was released from jail on $150,000 bond, and the Discovery Channel canceled “Sons of Guns.”
The younger victim told police that Hayden had raped her on a near-daily basis since March 2013.
Hayden told the gossip website TMZ that an ex-girlfriend reported the alleged abuse in that case in response to their recent breakup.
