 width=The Buffalo Bills placed offensive line coach Aaron Kromer on indefinite paid administrative leave following his recent arrest, the team announced in a statement Tuesday.

Kromer was arrested on Sunday morning in Walton County, Florida and charged with misdemeanor battery following an altercation in which he allegedly punched a boy.

The Walton County Sheriff's Office received a call Sunday in reference to a battery at Inlet Beach on Saturday night. Deputies who responded were told that three boys had been fishing on the beach when they were confronted by Kromer and his son over the use of beach chairs left near a beach access.

The alleged victims told deputies that Kromer threw a fishing pole into the water, then pushed one of them to the ground and punched him in the face. The boy who was allegedly punched said Kromer told him if he reported the incident to the police, he would kill the boy's family, the sheriff's office said.

Kromer was booked into the Walton County Jail and released later Sunday on bond. The 15-year NFL coach was hired by the Bills in January after spending the past two seasons as the offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears.
