Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer was arrested early Sunday morning on a misdemeanor battery charge after he got into an altercation with his neighbor’s juvenile son. The alleged details are alarming.

According to a press release from the Walton County Sheriff’s Office, Kromer allegedly pushed a boy to the ground and punched him in the face. The altercation reportedly began when Kromer and his son confronted three boys over the use of beach chairs left near a beach access. The three boys were fishing on the beach at the time.

The alleged victims told police that Kromer grabbed their fishing pole and threw it into the water before physically assaulting one of them. Kromer then told the boys to return the chairs to where they found them. The victim Kromer punched says the 48-year-old coach threatened to kill his family if he told police what had happened.

The investigation remains ongoing, and the Bills say they are in the process of gathering more information. Some of you may know Kromer as the coach who anonymously bashed Jay Cutler last season, but that didn’t stop Rex Ryan from hiring him.

If even a fraction of the alleged details from the Kromer’s arrest are true, it’s hard to imagine him keeping his job.
