Gun company cuts ties with reality TV star

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A firearms company affiliated with reality TV star Will Hayden is distancing itself from him after his arrest on rape charges. In a statement on its website, Red Jacket Firearms LLC says it has legally separated from Hayden. The Baton Rouge-based company says it will remain in business. The Discovery Channel canceled "Sons of Guns" after Hayden's arrest on Tuesday. Discovery says it killed the show due to "the serious and horrific nature of the charges" against Hayden. The show featured Hayden and his firearms business. The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office says Hayden was arrested on aggravated rape charges involving a child. He already faced child molestation and aggravated crime against nature charges. It wasn't immediately clear whether Hayden had an attorney.
