Will Hayden, star of the Discover Channel reality TV show “Sons of Guns,” was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated rape of a 12-year-old.
According to The Times-Picayune, in an affidavit the alleged victim told East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies that Hayden had raped her almost daily since March 2013.
Also in the affidavit, the victim told authorities she did not report the acts because she feared physical abuse from Hayden, who allegedly told the victim, "Don't tell them nothing, because I'm all you got.”
Hayden was the founder and owner of Red Jacket Firearms in Baton Rouge and, according to RawStory, has been on five seasons of the Discovery Channel show “Sons of Guns,” which centers on his business.
Hayden was also arrested on Aug. 9 and charged with molestation of a juvenile and crimes against nature. According to WAFB-TV, he bonded out from that arrest after posting a $150,000 bond.
TMZ.com reported that Hayden claimed the first arrest was the result of retaliation from an ex-girlfriend.
WAFB-TV reports the CEO of Red Jacket Firearms says Hayden agreed to separate himself from the company after the first arrest.
On Tuesday evening, Red Jacket Firearms released the following statement on its Facebook page: Today, Red Jacket Firearms has received complete legal separation as an entity, from Will Hayden. We will continue to operate, although with heavy hearts and promise to do everything in our power to fill customer orders, back orders and provide support to those affected by these new developments.
WAFB contacted Laurie Goldberg, a spokesperson with Discovery Communications, who says they are aware of the situation and have no comment at this time.Wed, 27 Aug 2014 12:34:32 -0400
A dog is being blamed for a wreck after a driver ran a car into a building.
A woman was bringing her dog to the groomer when he recognized the building and went a little crazy.

Officials said the dog jumped to the floorboard and prevented the driver from braking. The car crashed into the business that was connected to the groomer’s home.
The building inspector came out and condemned the structure because it’s off its frame.
North Carolina Highway Patrol said it was an accident and charges would not be filed.
Officials said the lesson is dogs on the way to the groomers should ride in a crate.

An Indian woman in her 50s says she fought off and killed a leopard by herself.
And not only did she live to tell the tale, but she also had to walk at least half a mile to get treatment for her several wounds. (Video via NDTV)
The animal was found dead, and according to CNN, it wasn't the first leopard attack in the area.
A chief wildlife warden told the outlet: "These are alarming incidents because usually leopards attack and kill dogs, goats or young children — not adults."
The amount of time the fight lasted is under media debate as well. Some say it was an hour, others that it was about 30 minutes. Her age has also been shown as both 54 and 56.
â€‹â€‹But most reports seem to agree the leopard was found dead. The woman showed up with several deep wounds that required several dozen stitches, but she's reportedly in stable condition.
National Geographic says many leopard populations across Africa and Asia are endangered. Other outlets pinpoint their loss of habitat as a reason the big cats wander into villages and cities.Wed, 27 Aug 2014 10:51:27 -0400 News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
