Police said Maxwell was arrested at the Macon Police Detective Bureau on First Street following a police interview about 7 p.m.
An arrest warrant had been obtained prior to the interview, police said.
What led to the nightclub altercation early that Saturday morning remains unclear.
A police officer responded to Club Money’s at about 3:20 a.m. after receiving a request for help from two officers already at the club, according to a police report.
The officers needed help because the large fight had broken out and they couldn’t control the crowd, according to the report.
By the time the third officer arrived, Brown had been stabbed.
Gregory Moore, 23, of Macon, also was stabbed in the fight.
He was treated at a local hospital for injuries that were not life threatening, police said. The incident remains under investigation by Macon police.
