Cardinals 2nd-rounder arrested prior to draft


Cardinals second-round draft pick Christian Kirk was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona, in February for disorderly conduct and damaging property, according to online court records.

Scottsdale police told that Kirk and some of his friends were allegedly throwing rocks at cars on Feb. 3 as they were leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

“The suspects were intoxicated and leaving the WMPO. As they were walking through a parking lot, security personnel observed them throwing rocks at cars and breaking a window of at least one of them,” the police told the newspaper.

The Cardinals said in a statement that they were aware of the incident before drafting the former Texas A&M wide receiver 47th overall.

“We spoke with Christian about it at length and also looked into it independently. 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,” the team said.
