BUFFALO, N.Y. — Bills President Russ Brandon said offensive line coach Aaron Kromer was put on paid administrative leave after being accused of punching a boy in the face for using his beach chairs.
Brandon said the team is following the league’s personal conduct policy, putting Kromer, a former Saints assistant, on leave while investigating with the league.
The Walton County Sheriff’s Office said Kromer was arrested over the weekend after confronting two boys, pushing one to the ground and punching him.
An arrest report released this week said the boy told deputies that Kromer threatened to kill his family if he reported the incident.
Kromer is charged with battery that caused bodily harm.
Kromer joined the team in January after being fired from the Chicago Bears.
