SHERWOOD, Ark. (KATV) -

A second star of the TLC reality show "Cheer Perfection" has been arrested. Ronald Dunlap, 41, was arrested overnight and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Dunlap stars on the reality show with his wife Alisha Dunlap. Both are coaches at the Sherwood cheerleading gym Cheer Time Perfection.

"I'm in absolute shock. I'm disappointed beyond belief. But right now he's got to step away from the gym. Which breaks my heart. But my first concern is all those kids at the gym," Alisha Dunlap said.

Dunlap was arrested along with his former student at the gym, 21 year-old Ryan Dahl.

On Tuesday another star of the show, Andrea Cleavenger, one of the moms whose child attends the gym, was arrested and charged with rape of a minor.

"Everything that I had to go through emotionally yesterday was tough and it just got worse today because it's my family," Dunlap said.

Dunlap says her main concern is protecting the kids at her gym.

"I'm not going to give up. I'm not going to let my gym go because of something he did. I walk a very fine line. I watch everything I do and I'm very careful to try to be the absolute best role model I can be. So just because of someone else's mistake I'm not going to stop doing what I love to do," Dunlap said.

TLC did not renew the show for a third season and had no comment on any of the charges.
