Today brought news that Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer had been arrested by police in Florida following an altercation with three boys at a beach in Walton County, Florida over the use of beach chairs.

Details emerge

Kromer - a recent addition to the Bills staff by Rex Ryan - allegedly confronted the trio and threw their fishing equipment into the sea before punching one of them in the face. He has been charged on misdemeanor  battery.

And now, according to the New York Post, one of the victims have claimed Kromer made a specific threat in the aftermath of the incident.

The boy who was hit in the face by Kromer told the Post that the NFL coach threatened to kill his family if he went to the police to report the incident.

The death threat is a serious allegation and only adds to the seriousness of the situation.

Kromer was released on bond in the early hours of Sunday morning and the Buffalo Bills have since acknowledged the incident via an official statement.

Further action?

It remains to be seen whether the franchise choose to take action prior to the police taking the next steps in the investigation but, considering the current climate concerning player altercations, the team will surely come under pressure to act should the allegations be proven.

Aaron Kromer has only been with the Bills for a matter of months having arrived from the Chicago Bears this offseason where he had been the team's offensive coordinator.

There he had caused some controversy by openly criticizing quaterback Jay Cutler. His arrest today though raises far more serious concerns.

NFL fans: Do you think Aaron Kromer should lose his job if the claims turn out to be true? Have your say in the comments below...
