OAKLAND (KRON) — The Oakland Athletics issued a statement Sunday morning, following the arrest of catcher Bruce Maxwell.

He allegedly pointed a gun at a delivery woman at his home in Arizona.

The Athletics organization tweeted their response Sunday around 11:00 a.m.

The ball club states it is “disappointed” to hear about this incident, and that they are taking the investigation seriously.

Here is their short, but to the point statement:

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