Hayden’s older daughter told the website: “There was never any impropriety in our home. He was and is a good father."

Hayden was released on $150,000 bond.

Frank Holthaus, Hayden’s lawyer, told Fox 411 that the allegations were made by a ex-employee seeking revenge after being fired.

According to The Advocate, the accusations were made by a woman who said she saw Hayden kissing a girl at his home while undressed. Hayden told deputies he was wearing boxer-type briefs.

In a contrast to the TMZ report, The Advocate reported the accuser was recently was fired from Hayden’s gun shop and had no ties to the child and no romantic involvement with him.

An investigation into the allegations began on Aug. 5. The girl told investigators that she had not been sexually abused by Hayden.

Hayden could face 25 to 99 years in prison, if convicted, The Advocate reported.

"Sons of Guns" is about Red Jacket Firearms, founded by Hayden, which makes custom firearms in Baton Rouge.
