    [LA] Glee Actor Arrested on Child Porn Charges
    Actor Mark Salling, best known for his role in the TV musical series "Glee," was arrested on suspicion of possession of child porn, the LAPD said. Mekahlo Medina reports for the NBC4 News at Noon on Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2015. (Published Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2015)

    The 33-year-old actor is known for his role as Noah "Puck" Puckerman in the Fox musical comedy TV series "Glee."

    A resident of the quiet Sunland neighborhood located about 20 miles north of downtown Los Angeles said he had worked on special effects on "Glee," but had never met Salling.

    "We've rarely get to really, unless you're on there for a long time, get to know who the actors really are. But hey, a lot of actors have a lot of secrets," George Zamora said. "It always worries me when one of these guys come out of the woodwork. Sometimes they're friendly people, sometimes they're not."

    Earlier this year, Salling was ordered to pay $2.7 million after settling a sexual battery lawsuit with his ex-girlfriend.
