HONOLULU (KHNL) - Two cheerleading coaches on Oahu were taken into police custody Monday night, accused of showing pornography to a child.

Officers arrested Ariel Galvez, 21, and Scott Sampaio, 28, on suspicion of promoting pornography to a minor.

Investigators say they befriended a 14-year-old boy over the Internet, invited the child to their home, and showed him a pornographic video.

Sampaio was a cheerleading coach at Waipahu and Campbell high schools, before starting his own cheerleading business last year.

The suspects are free pending further investigation.
