A former star of US hit TV show Glee has been arrested in Los Angeles over allegations of possessing images of child sex abuse, said police.

Mark Salling was taken into custody after a warrant was served at his home, said a Los Angeles police spokesman.

The 33-year-old, who played football player Noah "Puck" Puckerman, had been investigated by a special police task force, the spokesman said.

His representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

The musical comedy-drama aired on Fox from 2009 until March 2015.
