Will Hayden
-- the main gunsmith on the reality show "Sons of Guns" -- was arrested in Louisiana and booked for child molestation … but he says the arrest is the result of a bitter ex-girlfriend's false allegations.

TMZ has learned Hayden was arrested on Saturday by East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies -- and according to the Sheriff's website he is accused of molestation of a child and a crime against nature, an aggravated offense.

According to the Sheriff's website, Hayden was released Saturday after posting a $150,000 bond. 

Hayden tells TMZ his ex-girlfriend, and mother to one of his daughters, went to cops more than a week ago and accused him of molesting their child. He claims the woman did it in retaliation for him ending their relationship.

Hayden also says the daughter -- who he is raising with his new wife -- was interviewed by Child Protective Services and returned to his home. He says he is fully cooperating with authorities.

Will's older daughter Stephanie tells us, "There was never any impropriety in our home. He was and is a good father."

Amazing how anyone can say anything about you then you get arrested and lose everything. Doesn't have to be true. Just somebody's words can put you in jail. No proof. I just love this society we live in. Guilty til YOU can proverify yourself innocent.

If it becomes clear that she accused him of that just to get revenge, she should get prison time. And A LOT of it. You shouldn't be able to accuse someone of such a horrific thing and then just walk away.

It's crazy how you can get arrested for something without there being any evidence. I don't believe he did it, and if the case gets dismissed, I'd sue the hell out of that bitch

One or the other should go off themselves. Like chrome to dome... click. Personally, I'd smoked the person falsely accusing me of being a chomo. Regardless, of who they are.

Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. But almost all peders use the "revenge of an ex" excuse. I would wait and see before judging.

Probable cause is apparently non-existent these days. All you need is an accusation & the cuffs come out.

If this is true and she has lied those kids need to be taken from her! Only a horrible person would do such a thing.

They don't arrest someone for this just because someone said he did it. There's more to this that what we just read on tmz. Also, seems weird they arrest the guy for molesting his daughter and then immediately return the girl to his care.

If they interviewed the kid and still arrested him he's guilty

There's an easy way to keep from this happening. Quit going from relationship to relationship feeling you need to father a child with every woman you meet. Then when you finally get married, you won't have bitter ex's coming out of the woodwork.
