(Newser) – Mark Salling, who played Puck on Glee from 2009 to 2015, was arrested Tuesday morning for alleged possession of child pornography, an LAPD officer confirms to People. Crime Watch Daily first broke the story. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ authorities found more than a thousand images showing "child sexual exploitation" on Salling's computer, and that the images featured children "significantly younger" than 15 or 16.

Salling, 33, lives alone. Sources say his ex-girlfriend tipped off police and that the actor was "shocked" when they arrived at his house; he's said to have already hired a lawyer. In 2013, the actor was sued by an ex for allegedly forcing her to have sex without a condom; he denied it, but ended up paying her more than $2.7 million when the case was settled.
