Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer is making news for the wrong reason.

According to ESPN’s Mike Rodak, the newly hired assistant was arrested on a misdemeanor for allegedly punching a boy and threatening to kill his family due to a dispute over beach chairs. Per Rodak:

Kromer, 48, has been accused of pushing one of the boys to the ground and punching him in the face after throwing the fishing pole into the water. Kromer allegedly then ordered that the chairs be returned to where they were found and told the boy that he would kill his family if he reported him to the police, according to the statement.

It would be wise to reserve judgment until all facts are released, but nevertheless, Kromer will certainly be the subject of scrutiny and perhaps suspended temporarily while the case is investigated.

Last season as the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator, Kromer criticized quarterback Jay Cutler through the media. He apologized later during a team meeting.
