The 911 audio was released Thursday night from when Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell pointed a gun at a Postmates delivery woman.

“I just delivered food to the apartment complex… this guy answered the door, and he had, like, his gun pointing at me,” the woman can be heard telling the 911 dispatcher.

She remains incredibly calm for somebody who allegedly just had a gun put in their face. Police ultimately arrived, and arrested Maxwell last week on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.

The A’s catcher, who was the only player in the MLB to kneel during the national anthem, was also banned from using the popular food service.


It’s incredible how well the delivery woman kept her composure. Not too many people would be relatively casual after a weapon is displayed near them in a threatening fashion, let alone one put in their face. I don’t know how she pulled it off, but very impressive display of composure.
