We learned that Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer was arrested early Sunday morning in Walton County, Florida on a misdemeanor battery charge and the sheriff’s office has released some of the information that led to the arrest.
In a post to Facebook, Walton County Sherrif Michael A. Adkinson Jr. writes that deputies responded to a call on Saturday night and spoke to the caller who said that an altercation started while three boys were fishing on a beach. Kromer and his son are accused of confronting them about the use of beach chairs that escalated when Kromer grabbed one of the fishing poles and threw it in the water.
Kromer then allegedly “pushed one of the boys to the ground and punched him in the face” before telling him to return the chairs to where they found them. One of the alleged victims also told police that Kromer said that “if he reported him to the police he would kill his family.” No ages are given for the three boys, but Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the Walton County Sherrif’s Office said the boy Kromer allegedly punched in the face is a minor.
Adkinson adds that the investigation into the incident will continue and that additional charges could be filed in the coming days.
