Hollywood star Mark Salling, known for his role on the hit television series Glee, was arrested for possessing child pornography early Tuesday morning.

According to Daily Mail, LAPD’s internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a warrant at the 33 year-old actor’s home in Sunland, California. They reportedly found hundreds of indecent images of children on his computer, and Salling is now being held at Los Angeles’ Downtown jail.

Police were tipped off by Salling’s ex-girlfriend, and they had to investigate before the raid to make sure her tip wasn’t out of revenge.

Salling was a regular on Glee for five seasons before he was demoted to recurring guest star. This demotion occurred after a woman filed a lawsuit against Salling claiming he forced her to have unprotected sex with him after knocking her to her knees. The actor settled with her in March for $2.7 million after she dropped the sexual battery claim. Salling admitted to negligently causing her to fall to the ground.
