Oh, Karma! MLB Anthem Protester Bruce Maxwell Arrested on Gun Charge. [VIDEO]

Oh, Karma! MLB Anthem Protester Bruce Maxwell Arrested on Gun Charge. [VIDEO]

Football players get all the attention for kneeling during the National Anthem, but do you recall that there was a baseball player who protest-kneeled during the anthem?

Yeah, there was one. Just one. It was Bruce Maxwell, catcher for the Oakland Athletics, and he got lots of attention for his stunt from media like ESPN.

But Maxwell wasn’t content with the attention he got from kneeling. Hitting a single wasn’t good enough — he had to try for a double. Or maybe he wanted to be baseball’s version of Colin Kaepernick, kind of like a social justice warrior behind home plate. So when he was in Alabama last week, he complained that a Trump-supporting restaurant waiter refused to serve him.

The restaurant called foul on that pitch.
