Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell, who became the only Major League Baseball player to take a knee during the national anthem this season, has been arrested after he allegedly pointed a gun at a woman in Arizona.

More from Fox News:
Scottsdale police said officers went to Maxwell’s home Saturday night 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.
Yet, he is a “victim”. https://t.co/29r30BryS3

Maxwell’s claim of being refused service by a waiter last week started his downward spiral:
Last week, Maxwell claimed during a visit to his hometown of Huntsville, Ala., that he was refused service at a restaurant because of his protest. But a waiter told Fox News that Maxwell was “outright lying,” about what happened.
“I didn’t even know who Bruce Maxwell was,” waiter Matt Henry said.
Reminder, Bruce Maxwell praised a month ago as a "pioneer" & nabbed SI cover for kneeling. Said Trump "treats people differently." Hypocrite
