Christian Kirk, a former outstanding recipient at Texas A & M, who was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the second round was arrested nearly two months before the draft when he left the Waste Management Phoenix Open ,
Kirk and some of his friends were thrown with stones on cars on February 3 before the golf tournament. He was charged with criminal damages and the case is still pending.
According to Scottsdale Police, "The suspects were drunk and left the WMPO: As they walked through a parking lot, the security forces watched them throw stones at cars and break a window of at least one of them."

A Cardinals spokesman said the team had noticed the incident before drafting Kirk.
"We talked to Christian about this for a long time and also thought about it independently." The team spokesman said. "Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future, but as long as it remains an active legal matter, we will not comment further."
Kirk, the 47th overall punk on April 27, joined the Cardinals for Rookie Minicamp on May 11 – May 13 and is expected to participate in Organized Team Activities (OTAs) Tuesday through Thursday.
At post-draft news conferences, General Manager Steve Keim said the Cardinals this year paid special attention to the characters in designing players. There are no reports that Kirk ever gets into trouble in high school or college is.
New coach Steve Wilks has said several times that he wants players with the right DNA.
"We do not want a choir, I'm not saying that," Wilks said recently, "but we want to make sure we get good footballers into the building, we will not worry about getting a call in the morning Somebody coming out in Scottsdale is doing something crazy. "
