Cardinals Rookie WR Christian Kirk Arrested

Cardinals second-round wide receiver Christian Kirk will come into the NFL with a recent arrest on his record.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports the Texas A&M product was arrested for disorderly conduct and property damage in February. Kirk and some friends were seen throwing rocks at cars at the PGA Tour’s Waste Management Phoenix Open. The police report indicates Kirk and the others were intoxicated leaving the golf tournament and throwing rocks at cars in the parking lot.

The Cardinals knew about this arrest before the draft, and Somers adds the case is still pending. Kirk attended Arizona’s minicamp and is expected to attend OTAs, which begin Tuesday.

We spoke with Christian about it at length and also looked into it independently,” the team said in a statement. “Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future but while it remains an active legal matter, we won’t comment further.”

Kirk, who is not believed to have been in trouble in high school or college, per Somers, is expected to play a key role for the Cardinals this season. The team lost both John Brown and Jaron Brown in free agency but used a second-round pick on Kirk, who starred at A&M.

    Another case of someone with a high profile getting away with something an average human being wouldn’t.

      It’s not a case of someone high profile getting away with that average people wouldn’t. He got arrested. It’s throwing freaking rocks. Most people wouldn’t get arrested for that, moron.

          You can come throw a rock (1) at my car . With that in mind as you cock your arm back with #2 , you will be swallowing some rounds.

        In my town the police wont even respond if you call. They will tell you a community service officer will come the next day to take a report.

    He will play a key role for the team after his 4 game suspension.

    afsooner I take exception to your comment when I was 12 I knew it was wrong to throws rocks at cars and would get my butt beat if I did. It is a different world now and kids aren’t held responsible so he might have just thought it was funny.

      99.9999% of us know that. However when you read/hear about someone getting caught doing it, they’re usually around 12.

        Actually, in my brother’s case, I think he was nine or ten, and it was snowballs. But I could certainly see a GROUP of 12-year olds doing it, since people act more stupid in groups. In Kirk’s case, my mouth is just hanging open at the idiocy of it. What a dumb schmuck.

    Sounds like he needs new friends. Ones that wouldn’t let him throw rocks at cars.
