BUFFALO, N.Y. - Bills President Russ Brandon says offensive line coach Aaron Kromer has been put on paid administrative leave after being accused of punching a boy in the face for using his beach chairs.

Brandon says the team is following the league's personal conduct policy, putting Kromer on leave while investigating with the league.

The Walton County Sheriff's Office says Kromer was arrested over the weekend after confronting two boys, pushing one to the ground and punching him.

An arrest report released this week says 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.
