Cops Say Bruce Maxwell Cussed Out & Berated Officers During Gun Arrest
Bruce Maxwell has been in the news a lot lately after he became the first MLB player to kneel in protest during the national anthem.
Then, about a week ago, he told a story about a Pro-Trump waiter who wouldn’t serve him because of him disrespecting the Anthem. And just a few days after that, Maxwell made headlines once again when he got arrested this past Saturday for pointing a gun at a delivery woman.

Now the arresting officers are stating he made ‘anti-police statements’ directed at them, as well as cussed them and berated them during that arrest.
TMZ has the details:
“When cops confronted Maxwell, he reeked of booze, cussed like crazy and couldn’t keep his story straight. However, at one point Maxwell said he had cancelled his food order before it arrived and was not expecting it to be delivered.
Cops say Maxwell admitted he had 2 guns in his apartment and a bunch of ammo — but insisted he had a concealed carry permit.
As the investigation continued, cops say Maxwell “began making anti-police statements and utilized excessive profanity.” When cops decided to arrest him, he initially refused to comply.
One cop had a rifle trained on Maxwell during the incident. Another gave Maxwell instructions while pointing a taser at him. Maxwell ultimately surrendered without any weapons being used.
Maxwell was transported to a nearby jail, where he continued to cuss out police officers — according to the report. “
