LOS ANGELES (AP) – Authorities say former “Glee” star Mark Salling has been arrested in Los Angeles for investigation of possessing child pornography.

Police Officer Tony Im says the 33-year-old actor was taken into custody Tuesday after a warrant was served at his home in the Sunland neighborhood.

Im says Salling had been investigated by the LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, but he did not elaborate.

Representatives for Salling did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Im didn’t know if Salling has a lawyer.

Salling is best known for playing Noah “Puck” Puckerman on TV’s “Glee.” The musical comedy-drama aired on Fox from 2009 through March of this year.
