LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Former "Glee" star Mark Salling has been arrested for possession of child pornography, Variety as confirmed.

Salling, known for playing Noah "Puck" Puckerman on "Glee," was arrested early Tuesday after his Sunland, Calif., home was searched per a warrant from the Los Angeles Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, according to LAPD officer Liliana Preciado.

He was taken downtown for booking.

Reps for Salling did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

This is not Salling's first run-in with the law. Earlier this year, he was involved in a lawsuit for allegedly pushing his girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela. She sued for sexual battery.
