On Friday, a federal grand jury indicted former "Glee" star Mark Salling on two counts of possessing child pornography, according to TMZ. 

Salling was arrested for possession of child pornography in December 2015 after Crime Watch Daily reported that the Los Angeles Police Department's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Unit seized the actors laptop and found "hundreds" of images on it.

TMZ added that, in addition to the photos (which featured minors under the age of 12), there were also multiple videos. 

This isn't the 33-year-old's first brush with the law, as he settled a $2.7 million lawsuit for a sexual battery incident involving his ex-girlfriend in 2015.

UPDATE (June 3): The Associated Press reports that Salling surrendered to federal authorities on Friday. Accompanied by his lawyer, the actor is set to make his first court appearance. 

The Huffington Post has reached out to Salling's rep and will update this post accordingly.
