Aaron Kromer : Buffalo Bills offensive line coach arrested after argument over beach chair

Aaron Kromer, fired in December after the team’s disastrous 5-11 season, was arrested in Florida early Sunday morning on misdemeanor battery charges.

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office said the dispute arose after Kromer and his son confronted three boys about their use of beach chairs while fishing near their home. In a statement, the sheriff’s office said Kromer grabbed the boys’ fishing pole and threw it in the water before assaulting one boy.

“The victim stated Kromer also told him if he reported him to the police he would kill his family,” the sheriff’s office said.

Aaron Kromer, 48, was taken into custody just before 2 a.m. Sunday and released on bond about an hour later, jail records show.

He is charged with battery that caused bodily harm, but the sheriff’s office said it was still investigating and additional charges are possible. The sheriff’s office did not release the names or ages of the boys who were involved in the incident.

In a written statement, the Bills said, “We are aware of the report and in the process of gathering the facts.”

Aaron Kromer joined the team in January after being fired from the Chicago Bears.
