Report: Christian Kirk arrested for drunken behavior following golf tournament in Phoenix Report: Cardinals 2nd-round pick Christian Kirk was arrested prior to draft

The 21-year-old and his friends were seen throwing rocks at cars while leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Scottsdale police told azcentral.com.

Wide receiver Christian Kirk was arrested in February and charged with disorderly conduct and damaging property on Feb. 3, almost three months before the Arizona Cardinals selected him with a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. A window was broken, and Scottsdale police told the Arizona Republic "the suspects were intoxicated".

Kirk, a wide receiver who starred at Saguaro High School before playing for Texas A&M, was selected by the Cardinals in the second round of last month's National Football League draft. And while he may be looking forward to playing alongside franchise icon Larry Fitzgerald and possibly replacing him as the team's primary receiver, reports have alleged that he was involved in an incident a few months before the draft that didn't seem to bother the Cardinals too much when they picked him last month.

Presidents who have won the Nobel Prize include, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter, and Barack Obama . The letter is also signed by the governors of Alabama, Guam, Kansas, Mississippi, Maine and West Virginia.

The Cardinals' website says the team remains "confident in Christian Kirk's character" despite his February arrest. "Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future", the team said.

Kirk attended the Cardinals' minicamp from May 11-13. "And as I stated before, we want to bring in great character guys, and I think Christian is one of those guys". That is what I would be interested to know, and I'm sure we won't get an answer.

Kirk never missed a game in three seasons with the Aggies and ended his time in College Station as one of the top receivers in school history. He was a standout at Saguaro High in Scottsdale and played at Texas A&M.
