Scottsdale, AZ – Major League Baseball kneeler Bruce Maxwell has been banned from a food delivery service, amid reports that he pointed a gun at the head of one of their delivery people last weekend.
Postmates, a delivery service, said it no longer will serve the Oakland A’s player who was the only MLB player to kneel during the national anthem this season, TMZ first reported.
“We recently learned that a Postmates courier was threatened by a customer in Scottsdale this past weekend. Although we’re still investigating the incident, the report is deeply concerning and we’ve reached out to provide assistance and support to the courier involved and have removed the customer from our platform,” Postmates said in a statement to FOX Business,
Scottsdale Police said that when they arrived at the baseball player’s house, he appeared inebriated.
Police said he was yelling profanities and making “anti-police” statements while being detained.
Deadspin.com released the 20 pages of police reports from the Scottsdale Police Department on the Oct. 28 incident.
The police report states that the food delivery woman knocked on the screen door, and the door opened, and Maxwell was pointing a silver gun right at her face “without any provocation.”
The delivery woman said she was in shock and asked, “Are you Bruce?”
With the gun still pointed at her face, Maxwell asked what he ordered and told her to “not worry about the gun.”
According to the police report, Maxwell became agitated when police showed up to answer a complaint about a man pointing a gun at a food delivery person.
Maxwell denied pointing the gun at the driver, saying he only pulled the gun out of his shorts, according to The Mercury News. He told police he had canceled his food order.
“I asked if he pointed the gun as it was alleged he did and he now became verbally aggressive and stated he should have never been detained,” one of the responding officers wrote in the police report.
“He began making anti-police statements and utilized excessive profanity," the report said.
The police report doesn’t describe what anti-police statements Maxwell made.
