Former Glee star and musician Mark Salling has just been arrested by the LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force for possession of child pornography. The 33-year-old starred on the Fox musical hit as Noah “Puck” Puckerman for six years, and has released two albums on his own, the most recent being 2010’s Pipe Dreams.

We’re told cops searched Salling’s computer at his Sunland home and found hundreds of images.
