A's catcher Bruce Maxwell arrested in Arizona

- A member of the Oakland Athletics who protested racial injustice now has legal problems of his own.

A's catcher Bruce Maxwell is under arrest in Arizona.

Maxwell got a lot of attention for kneeling for kneeling during the national anthem at an A's game last month.

A woman who was delivering food to him in Scottsdale says he pointed a gun at her.

Maxwell was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.

The Oakland A's responded to Maxwell's arrest. They said in a statement, "We were dissapointed to learn of the allegations. We take this situation and ongoing investigation seriously. We are gathering information from the proper authorities and do not have further comment at this time."

Maxwell was the only player in Major League Baseball to take a knee during the anthem this season.

He also claims he was refused service at an Alabama restaurant because of his protest.
