Having said that, Bruce Maxwell made headlines because he was the first BASEBALL player to kneel for the national anthem, and now he has just been arrested on a gun charge.
To be honest, are we even surprised by this?
Here’s the story from Fox News:
Bruce Maxwell, the only Major League Baseball player to kneel during the national anthem this season, has been arrested on a gun charge.
The Oakland Athletics catcher allegedly pointed a gun at a female food delivery person in Scottsdale, Ariz.
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.
Police said Maxwell was held in custody pending an initial appearance.
TMZ Sports first reported the arrest.
Twitter reacted in epic fashion to this news:
If a spoiled millionaire doesn’t respect our national anthem, how could we ever expect him to respect our laws?
Sadly, we can’t.
