Two days after Aaron Kromer was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge in Florida, the Buffalo Bills have decided to place the offensive line coach on paid administrative leave. In a statement released Tuesday, team president Russ Brandon said the following:
“Over the last few days our organization has continued to gather information in regards to the alleged incident involving Offensive Line Coach Aaron Kromer.
“We have been in regular discussions with the league office and have decided to place Aaron on indefinite paid administrative leave in accordance with the league’s Personal Conduct Policy while we continue to work our way through the investigative process with the league."
Kromer is accused of pushing and punching a juvenile in Walton County, Fla., early Sunday morning and then threatening to kill his family if he told police. The redacted arrest report was made public by the Walton County Sheriff's Office Monday. Names and ages of the three boys Kromer and Kromer's son approached were not released, but the office did say the alleged victim had “some swelling and some bruising” to the left side of his face.
So now it appears the Bills will continue to investigate the case with Kromer on leave.
