Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell made headlines earlier this week when he accused a restaurant of refusing to serve him due to racism.
On Sunday, Maxwell again made headlines -- this time because he was arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct after he allegedly pointed a gun at a food delivery person.

The Athletics and Major League Baseball have yet to issue statements.
Maxwell rose to prominence earlier in the year, when he became the first major-league baseball player to kneel during the national anthem. He hit .237/.329/.333 with three homers and 22 RBI in 2017.
