Former Bears OC Aaron Kromer arrested for battery

Former Bears offensive coordinator and current Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer was reportedly arrested early on Sunday for battery with intent to cause bodily harm.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Kromer's arrest was for having a physical altercation with his neighbor's son.

Rapoport tweeted this information of his arrest in Florida:

Kromer spent two seasons with the Bears before being let go at the end of last season. In December, Kromer claimed to be the anonymous person who leaked a report criticizing quarterback Jay Cutler. He later apologized to the team and staff, where Cutler reportedly just shook his head.

In January, Kromer signed a two-year contract with the Bills to become the team's offensive line coach, joining Rex Ryan's staff.

UPDATE: Here are the official details from The Walton County Sheriff, Michael A. Adkinson, Jr.

On Saturday night deputies with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence on Winston lane at Inlet Beach in Walton County, Fla in reference to a battery.

When they arrived deputies spoke to the caller and learned three boys had been fishing on the beach when the suspect, later identified as Buffalo Bills Offensive Line Coach Aaron Kromer, and the suspect’s son confronted them over the use of beach chairs left by a beach access. 

Victims told deputies Kromer grabbed their fishing pole and threw the pole into the water and then pushed one of the boys to the ground and punched him in the face. It was stated Kromer then told the boys to return the chairs to where they found them. 

The victim stated Kromer also told him if he reported him to the police he would kill his family. 

Kromer was subsequently arrested early Sunday morning on a misdemeanor battery charge and transported and booked into the Walton County Jail. He has since been released on bond. 

WCSO is continuing to investigate and additional charges may be filed. WCSO executive staff will be reviewing this case first thing Monday morning when the redacted arrest report will be made available. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Bears vs. Patriots Live Blog: Score, highlights, analysis from NFL Week 4 game

WE"LL DO IT LIVE. 

Welcome back, gang. It feels like only a week ago we were all in Miami, watching one of the drunkest Bears games we've seen in a while. No rest for the weary, though, and the Bears are back in Chicago and oh god they're playing Tom Brady and the Patriots. Khalil Mack WILL play, though, and Rob Gronkowski will NOT. One step at a time. 

As always, J.J. Stankevitz will be your eyes and ears from Soldier; give him a follow. Lorin Cox's tweets are also worth your time. 

1ST QUARTER

1217 - look at this absolute unit: 

1210 - Touchdown Pats. New England sort of did whatever they wanted to on that drive. It begins. PATRIOTS 7, BEARS 0. 

1205 - Bears kickoff to the Pats and we're underway here. So far NE's pass-catching backs are as good as advertised.
