SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell has been arrested in Arizona after a food delivery person alleged he pointed a gun at her.
Maxwell was the only player in Major League Baseball to take a knee this year during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
Scottsdale police say officers went to Maxwell's home around 6 p.m. Saturday after getting a call about a person with a gun. Maxwell was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.
Police said Maxwell was held in custody pending an initial court appearance. It wasn't known if he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
