The Glee star, 33, was thrown in jail after cops obtained an arrest warrant and raided his home in Sunland, Calif. on December 29, 2015. They allegedly found hundreds of photographs of the illegal material.
Officer Ludwig with the Los Angeles Police Department told Radar that Salling paid the $20,000 bond and was released about 2:45pm PST on December 29, 2015.
Known for his role as Noah "Puck" Puckerman, Salling was slapped with a lawsuit in 2013 by an ex-girlfriend for sexual battery, assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligence stemming from a terrifying night alone together two years prior.
According to Los Angeles Superior Court documents, model and deejay Roxanne Gorzela, 38, claimed Salling, then her boyfriend of six months, refused to wear a condom during sex despite her repeated demands during a March 2011 encounter that turned violent.
