Discovery Channel(NEW YORK) -- The Discovery Channel has cancelled Sons of Guns after the show's star, Will Hayden, was arrested on a rape allegation.

A spokesperson for the cable network said in a statement obtained by Deadline.com, "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."

A statement posted on the Red Jacket Firearms website reads, "Red Jacket Firearms LLC. has initiated and received full legal separation as an entity, from William M. Hayden."
