MLB Player Arrested After Kneeling for the National Anthem

On Saturday night, Arizona law enforcement officers arrested the only Major League Baseball player that has taken a knee during the national anthem this season, for allegedly pointing a gun at a female food delivery worker.

Police arrested Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell, 26, at his home in Scottsdale after getting a call about the incident, Fox News reported.

Police booked Maxwell on charges of “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.”

Maxwell claimed last week that he was racially profiled at a restaurant in his hometown in Alabama and was refused service.

“He was like, ‘You’re the guy that took the knee?’ He goes, ‘I voted for Trump and I stand for everything he stands for,'” Maxwell claimed.

However, the waiter who served Maxwell says that is not at all what happened.

“He is outright lying. This is really upsetting as he was given full service, I didn’t even know who Bruce Maxwell was,” Matt Henry, a 42-year-old waiter at Keegan’s Public House, told Fox News. “This all started because I carded his friend who wanted to order a beer.”

It turns out that Maxwell was dining with local Democratic councilman Devyn Keith and another individual who did not have a valid ID.

“He asked me, ‘Don’t you know who Bruce Maxwell is?’, and told me I was making everyone feel uncomfortable. Nobody was even paying attention to them,” Henry said. “I didn’t know anything about him or the kneeling. All I know is a friend of mine 15 years ago lost his job for serving someone a drink who happened to be underage, so if anyone looks under 30, I’m going to card them.”

Henry says that Maxwell’s friend gave him an invalid ID, at which point he notified his manager who says that Maxwell’s version of events could not be further from the truth.

“Matt came to me and told me that a guy wanted a beer but his ID was not valid and I told him he absolutely could not give it to him, we can go to jail for that in the state of Alabama,” the manager said, who asked not to be named. “It was his friend causing all the fuss, none of us even knew who this baseball player was. I told him I had no idea who he was going on about.”

Things got so ridiculous that Henry had to ask his manager to assign another server to the table because he couldn’t deal with them anymore.

    This MLB snowflake must be a Democrat


    Just another asshole

    Well, this is typical of a “kneeler” first, he tries to set (a setup, by the way with the help of the Democratic Congressman) ) a false narrative of not being served so he and his idiotic Congressman buddy can self aggrandize themselves (fake news) then he gets arrested on some serious charges (of course innocent until the facts of the charge are proven as your’re only guilty before facts proven if you’re a conservative or President Trump).

    • Joe Williams

      …or of course Hilliary Clinton, James Comey, B, Hussein Obama, et al…

        BS! The people U named, Have gotten away with things that anyone of the GOP persuasion would have been “tarred & feathered”.

        • Joe Williams

          Perhaps you misread, what I meant. Those people got away with their obvious crimes, because they are NOT GOP members.

  • johnz

    A celeb elitist, demanding the little people pay homage to this fascist.

  • Robert Marshall

    Typical lying POS.

  • Good! Lock the dumbass up for a few years time to think about his foolish and dangerous crime!

  • Lana Golembeski

    This cannot possibly be a true story. First, it mentions a female food deliverer. Then this happened in Arizona. But later it is stated that this was in Alabama. Too many things that do not jibe.

    • HCUA

      Read the story. He was arrested in Arizona for the gun incident, but, the restaurant incident was in his home town in Alabama. He is the only known ball player who knelt down this year, and Oakland should send him back to the minors, where he belongs.
      I notice that another player has his hand on Maxwell’s shoulder, as if he supports his action.
      There must be some ball players who think like Crappernick, but, they are not doing the Monica Lewinsky thing.

  • Lock him up for twenty years in a federal penitentiary. Good bye Maxwell the other convicts will welcome a new member to their society convict #……….. they crooks and killers and the queers will show you how much they love you.

    Another POS so called American who doesn’t have a clue. All these snowflake non American, Democrat ass holes, are so used to being on their knees, they think its politically correct. KEEP THE KNEELER IN JAIL. HE’s in the right position for jail! SUCH LOSERS!!

  • ramp1955

    Who is he anyway.

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    Matt did the right thing in refusing service to an underage patron.
    A Democratic councilman just happened to be there without a proper ID.
    Can you say set up and fake news? What a sham!!!
    This is a fake story to “highlight” a new kneeler in Baseball.
    Then he dares to point a gun at a female worker?
    I am sure that there is much more to this story than meets the eye.

    Max the ass is a good candidate to test new coffins! Can someone fit him with one?

    I don’t even know who the hell this baseball player guy is. I quit watching baseball in the early 80s, when Yankees catcher Thurman Munson was killed in a plane crash. Then we lost Billy Martin. Like him or hate him there was never a dull moment when Billy was around. Baseball is no fun anymore. It’s as bad as football. You can’t spike the football in the end zone if you get a touchdown. You can’t dance. You can’t throw a high 5, all because you might hurt da other team’s widdle feewings. Oh, holy crap, GET OVER IT! But now these ball players have become prissy little prima donna snowflakes who think they should be recognized and worshipped wherever they go. I would have done the EXACT same thing that Matt Henry did. I wouldn’t lose an hour’s sleep over it, either, because I’m not going to lose my job over what was obviously a setup. Nice try, baseball jerk, with Congressman buddy. Yet another example of the snowflakes thinking we’re stupid and us clobbering them at their own game. Ha!

    A real POS! I am so tired and disgusted at these bums. The major crimes against blacks is “black crime against blacks” Blacks are killed not by white folks, cops, but by other blacks. Why not do something about that! Have you ever been in Atlanta, or Detroit, or other major cities – they are rotten to the core. The core is made up of black folks who kill, rape, do drugs, won’t work, etc. In most cities they are called “the bad part of town”. Lets fix the real problem.

  • Forrest Huck London

    bound to be a democrat trying to get some airtime must not be much of a ball player or he wouldn,t need air time

  • equestrian_colt

    All of this is word of mouth and you all are automatically taking sides there is no proof other than hear say

  • Joecolt

    I’m Going to be 64 and I don’t get mad when they Proof me, I don’t look 64 So it Cracks me up. He took a Knee so everyone is out to get him, Guilty conscience he must know he was wrong to take a knee against his Country. He has no Excuse to Brandish a Gun, Just seems to be an all around A -hole. Maybe a Boycott is in need.

      I’ve already boycotted the NFL, now I guess we’ll have to do the same with MLB, these black athletes really are A-holes, you would think that the hit that the NFL is taking (on lost attendance) would be a lesson to MLB, but I guess not. I’m tired of this crap and I certainly don’t mind turning off baseball also, I’m a veteran and I think it is direspectful to the Veterans that have fought for our country and lost life or limb trying to protect our country and our rights to pursue the occupation of our choice, and made it possible for these athletes to make contracts worth millions of dollars, and these black ingrates have the audacity to insult them by kneeling during the National Anthem, which is honoring the veterans. These ingrates are not using freedom of speech, they are in my opinion acting out on their job while they are supposed to be doing the job they are paid to do, honoring their contracts with their employers, nobody that I have ever known has been able to act out while on the job, employers don’t have to allow it, and if they do, they will answer to the fans that are paying their salaries. They already demand an exorbitant amount of money to entertain us, but if they want to offend our veterans prior to entertaining us then that is not acceptable, and I will not be insulted in that manner.
