Mark Salling: Friends Call Him ‘Skeezy’ After His Arrest For Child Pornography

Mark Salling's friends claim to be shocked that he was arrested for the possession of child pornography; however, when talking about their supposed friend, they're quick to say he's 'skeezy'. That's pretty harsh coming from the pals who are supposed to have his back! Mark Salling, 33, was arrested by the LAPD on Dec. 29 for the possession of porn involving minors "engaging in or simulating sexual conduct", and his peers can hardly believe the news. Several insiders close to Mark have revealed that while he's always been flirtatious, this behavior is unexpected. See what they had to say about their friend!

“This isn’t the guy I know at all,” a friend of the Glee star told PEOPLE. “I have to believe his computer was hacked.” As TMZ reported, officers searched Mark’s computer and found hundreds of incriminating photos. Another insider tells the website that while Mark is a ladies’ man, his arrest is surprising because the friend thought he’d never go so far over the line: “He loves going out and has always been a big flirt — constantly hitting on women at parties…He came across as skeezy but I never would have pegged him for something like this.” Mark was bailed out for $20,000, according to Officer Aareon Jefferson of the Los Angeles Police Department, and a court date for the star has been set for Jan. 22, 2016.

Mark — best known as Noah “Puck” Puckerman on Glee — has a shaky record when it comes to his legal past. He was sued by an ex-girlfriend, Roxanne Gorzela, in 2013 for sexual battery and assault. Roxanne also alleged that he forced her to have sex without a condom, and that he pushed her to the ground when she refused. Roxanne dropped the battery claim after Mark agreed to pay Roxanne about $2.7 million in a settlement. As for his other beaus, Mark was dated Disney star Denyse Tontz in 2014, as well as Glee costar Naya Rivera.

HollywoodLifers, do you agree with Mark’s friends — was his computer hacked, or is he truly guilty?
