Via the Buffalo News, Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer was arrested early Sunday morning in Walton County, Fla., on a misdemeanor battery charge. The alleged incident supposedly involves an “altercation with a neighbor’s juvenile son.”
The details of the alleged incident are appalling, which can be found on the Facebook page for Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson, Jr.:
When they arrived deputies spoke to the caller and learned three boys had been fishing on the beach when the suspect, later identified as Buffalo Bills Offensive Line Coach Aaron Kromer, and the suspect’s son confronted them over the use of beach chairs left by a beach access.
Victims told deputies Kromer grabbed their fishing pole and threw the pole into the water and then pushed one of the boys to the ground and punched him in the face. It was stated Kromer then told the boys to return the chairs to where they found them.
The victim stated Kromer also told him if he reported him to the police he would kill his family.
Kromer was booked shortly before 2 a.m. and released on bond a little over an hour later. Kromer joined Rex Ryan’s coaching staff in January after spending the last two seasons as the Chicago Bears’ offensive coordinator. In a statement released Sunday to the Buffalo News, the Bills organization stated “We are aware of the report and in the process of gathering the facts.”
