Mark Salling was released from a Los Angeles jail on bail on Tuesday afternoon, hours after he was arrested for child pornography.

As Gossip Cop reported, Los Angeles Police Department officers took Salling into custody at his home Tuesday morning after they had executed a search warrant. The investigation turned up allegedly illicit material, and he was booked for possession of child porn. With his family’s help, however, he was later able to be released.

While online records indicate Salling’s bail was set at $20,000, TMZ says his family put down 10 percent, which is $2,000, to secure his release. His next court appearance has been set for January 22. TMZ also reported earlier that more than 1,000 images qualifying as child porn were discovered on Salling’s computer, but that has not yet been confirmed.

A request for comment to the star’s rep has not been returned. None of Salling’s former “Glee” colleagues have weighed in on the disturbing news, but a number of fans have taken to social media to express shock and concern. Indeed, both “Mark Salling” and “Puck,” the nickname of his “Glee” character, became trending topics on Twitter after the news broke. Tell us what YOU think in the comments below.
