A rep for Discovery tells TMZ … “Given the serious and horrific nature of the charges against Will Hayden, we have decided to halt further production of Sons of Guns and cancel the series.”

The move follows a second arrest of William Hayden, one of the stars of the show and founder of Red Jack Firearms. Hayden was arrested yesterday after his 13 year old daughter signed an affidavit alleging over a year of sexual abuse by her father.

According to,

The [daughter] told deputies with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office that since March 2013, that Hayden had raped her almost daily, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The victim says Hayden took her virginity when she was 11-year-old and would allegedly take her in his bedroom and rape, according to the affidavit. The victim told authorities she did not report the acts because she feared physical abuse from Hayden.

Red Jacket Firearms also made an announcement on Facebook that they were legally separating themselves from Hayden following yesterdays accusations and arrest,

Sons of Guns was on the Discovery Channel for 5 seasons and produced 65 episodes.
