Oakland Athletics catcher, Bruce Maxwell is the ONLY MLB player to take a knee during the National Anthem. Karma grabbed him by the brain cells and brought him down HARD. Apparently, Maxwell thought pointing a gun at a delivery woman was a great idea. The police thought differently and arrested him!
This is what TMZ reported a few hours ago:
“Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after cops say he pulled a gun on a woman … TMZ Sports has learned. Scottsdale PD tells us Maxwell, 26, was arrested Saturday at 6:08 PM at his Scottsdale, AZ home. Cops say the alleged victim was a female food delivery driver who told them Maxwell pointed a gun at her. It’s unclear what led up to the incident. SPD says Maxwell was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct. Cops say he is in custody and awaiting his initial appearance in front of a judge.”
And to add salt to the wound of his arrest. Last week, Maxwell said that a waiter had refused him service at a restaurant in Alabama due to his kneeling during the Anthem and disrespecting the Flag. Fox News was quick to follow up with waiter involved and this is what the waiter told Fox:
“But a waiter told Fox News that Maxwell was “outright lying,” about what happened, I didn’t even know who Bruce Maxwell was.”
Can you say KARMA? Looks as if Maxwell is looking for reasons to cause an altercation over his anthem kneeling for attention. And noone seems to know or care who he is. It will be interesting to see what happens to Maxwell’s career.
Ironically, Dagger News checked out Bruce Maxwell’s Twitter account. Shockingly, he has this photo of MLK kneeling as his cover photo. The difference is: MLK is kneeling in prayer to GOD. Maxwell seems to have conflated disrespecting the flag in protest by taking a knee for being on your knees in prayer. BIG difference.
Check out his tweet from September 23rd.
This now has gone from just a BlackLives Matter topic to just complete inequality of any man or woman that wants to stand for Their rights!

Do you think the MLB will put a swift end to kneelers or do you think they will go down the same path as the NFL?
