A confrontation over beach chairs has led to a misdemeanor battery charge against an NFL coach with area ties.
48-year-old Aaron Kromer was jailed briefly early yesterday morning, in Walton County, Florida. Multiple media outlets say Kromer pushed a boy to the ground, punched him in the face, then threatened to kill his family, if he contacted police. He’s also accused of taking the boy’s fishing pole, and throwing it in the water. Kromer is a 1985 graduate of Margaretta High School. He’s currently the offensive line coach for the Buffalo Bills. He’s previously served as offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, and before that was interim head coach of the New Orleans Saints.
