FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer has pleaded not guilty to a charge that he punched a boy in the face for using his beach chairs in Florida.

Walton County court records show that Kromer filed a written plea of not guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor battery charge. The sheriff’s office says Kromer was arrested earlier this month after confronting two boys, pushing one to the ground and punching him.
