OAKLAND, Calif. - 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.

Maxwell was taken into custody just after 6 p.m. Saturday night at his Scottsdale home. He faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.

The 26-year-old gained attention when he became the first Major League Baseball player to kneel during the National Anthem last month.
