Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell, the only Major League Baseball player to kneel during the national anthem, claimed this week that a waiter in an Alabama restaurant refused to serve him.

Maxwell said he “got racially profiled in my hometown the day I got home. I wasn’t even home four hours and I got denied service at lunch with our city councilman who is also an African American guy I went to high school with because the dude recognized me as the guy who took a knee and he voted for Trump and was at that Trump rally in Huntsville, Alabama.”

The ball player said the water “was like, ‘Oh, yeah, you’re that guy, huh?’ And I was like, ‘scuse me?’ He was like ‘Yea, you’re the guy that took the knee?’ He goes, ‘I voted for Trump and I stand for everything he stands for.'”

But that’s not at all the way the incident went down, according to the waiter and other eyewitnesses in the restaurant, according to Fox News.

“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.”

According to Henry, an Alabama native, Maxwell was dining with local Democratic councilman Devyn Keith and another friend who produced an expired ID, and the server refused to serve him a drink — which upset the friend, who followed him into the kitchen.

“He asked me, don’t you know who Bruce Maxwell is, and told me I was making everyone feel uncomfortable. Nobody was even paying attention to them,” Henry claimed. “I didn’t know anything about him or the kneeling. All I know is a friend of mine 15 years ago lost his job for serving someone a drink who happened to be underage, so if anyone looks under 30, I’m going to card them.”
