The details on Heidi Montag's dad's horrific past as an alleged child molester are revealed

The father of reality star Heidi Montag has been arrested in Aspen, Colorado, on charges of aggravated incest, sexual assault on a child and sexual assault of a child by one in a position of trust, the Denver Post reported Friday.

According to the Post, William Montag, 67, was taken into custody at the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club, where he works. He was wanted on a statewide warrant issued in Arapahoe County, Colorado.

The arrest affidavit details the charges over 29 pages. According to the documents, the Arapahoe County Court is accusing William of sexually abusing a female minor from the time she was 13 to the time she was 17. The Post reports that those assaults, according to the report, took place in Frisco and Centennial, beginning in 1993.

Because of the dates, it looks like Heidi was not the minor who was abused — the report says the minor was 13 in 1993, when Heidi would have been only about 6. Heidi, who starred on MTV's reality series The Hills, was born in Crested Butte, which is not a location named in the affidavit.

According to the Post, there's a statute of limitations for the crimes of which William has been accused, so he won't be prosecuted for anything that occurred prior to July 1, 1996.

The report also says police received information from a social worker, who reported being told by the minor that she had been abused by William. The social worker reported the crimes in 2014, describing a timeline to police that included at least 50 separate incidents of abuse over five years, ending in 1998. It's unclear why the social worker didn't report the abuses to police until 2014.

Heidi has one older sister, Holly Montag, who was born in 1983 and also doesn't appear to fit the ages and times listed in the arrest affidavit.
