OAKLAND (KRON) — The Oakland Athletics issued a statement Sunday morning, following the arrest of catcher Bruce Maxwell.
Maxwell, who is widely known as the only player in Major League Baseball to take a knee during the national anthem this year, was arrested on gun charges Saturday night.
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:
