A cheer and tumbling coach in Kingsville, Texas, is facing a sex crime charge against a child.

Armando Gonzalez, 51, owner of All American Cheer Co., was arrested by Kingsville police early Sunday morning, according to KIII-TV

Gonzalez is facing a charge of indecency with a child by sexual contact, though it wasn’t yet clear if the charge stems from an incident involving a tumbling student, or if the minor victim knew Gonzalez in another context, KIII-TV reported. 

Gonzalez was booked into the Kleberg County Jail around 2 a.m. Sunday on a $30,000 bond, the Kleberg County Sheriff's Office said.

Less than 12 hours after after Gonzalez's arrest, the All American Cheer Co. announced on its Facebook page Sunday afternoon that it was “closed until further notice.”

The company specializes in training children as young as 3 years old to tumble, as well as public school cheerleader try-out preparation, according to the Facebook page.
