The Bills placed Aaron Kromer on paid leave Tuesday following his weekend arrest in Florida for punching and threatening a minor.

Details of the sordid incident are still coming to light, and on Wednesday ESPN reported that Kromer’s alleged victim is a 5-foot-8 minor who weighs 140 pounds. Kromer, who was an offensive lineman in college, checks in at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds.

Kromer, 48, is accused of pushing one of the boys to the ground and punching him in the face. He then threatened to kill the boy’s family if the minor informed the police about what happened.

The incident started over the use of some beach chairs.

Kromer, the former Bears offensive coordinator, joined Rex Ryan’s coaching staff in January.
