Well, that was quick.

Just a few days ago we were reporting on a story out of Huntsville, Alabama that had to do with Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell.

Maxwell told TMZ sports that he had suffered a racist altercation while visiting his hometown of Huntsville, Alabama. He told the website that he and some friends were “racially profiled” and that a waiter refused them service because he recognized Maxwell as the ONE major league baseball player who had knelt in protest during the National Anthem.

The only problem with Maxwell’s story?

It was a complete fabrication.

The waiter in question told Fox News that Maxwell’s story is a complete fabrication and that their dispute had nothing to do with protests, Trump, or anything about politics. It was all about alcohol.

“He is outright lying. This is really upsetting as he was given full service, I didn’t even know who Bruce Maxwell was,” Matt Henry, a 42-year-old waiter at Keegan’s Public House, told Fox News. “This all started because I carded his friend who wanted to order a beer.”

Apparently, witnesses say that Maxwell was never refused service nor was he even upset during his visit, but only his companions seemed agitated. Why would Maxwell make up such a disgusting and astonishing story?

Who knows? Maybe he felt the need to get some publicity for his failing anti-American cause?

Either way, his story fell apart very quickly and now things have gotten even worse for Maxwell.

Maxwell was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona on gun charges after he allegedly pointed a gun at a woman who was delivering food to his house.

Scottsdale police said officers went to Maxwell’s home Saturday night after getting a call about a person with a gun. Maxwell was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.

I’m not sure how the baseball player is going to paint this as a racist attack against him because of his “principled” stance against the nation that has made him wealthy… but i’m sure he’ll try.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
