Oakland A's catcher Bruce Maxwell has been arrested after a food delivery person says he pointed a gun at her, police in Scottsdale, Arizona say.

It is not clear what happened in the lead up to the alleged incident.

On top of the aggravated assault charge, Maxwell was also booked for disorderly conduct. Obviously, there's a lot that must play out here but Maxwell is certainly facing a future suspension from Major League Baseball.

After Oakland A's catcher Bruce Maxwell, who is the son of a military veteran, took a knee for the national anthem, he claimed he was refused service at a restaurant in his home state of Alabama.

The 26-year-old is reportedly being held in custody and awaiting his initial appearance in front of a judge.
