Report: Cardinals 2nd-round pick Christian Kirk was arrested prior to draft

Kirk, the 47th overall pick on April 27, joined the Cardinals for rookie minicamp May 11-13 and is expected to attend organized team activities (OTAs) on Tuesday through Thursday.

Perhaps the objective of that pre-draft visit was to learn more about the Texas A&M product's character after he was arrested back in early February, months before the draft, for disorderly conduct and property damage. He and friends were allegedly throwing rocks at cars.

On Monday, Scottsdale police said that Kirk and his friends were "intoxicated" and broke the window of at least one vehicle.

Azcentral.com reported the arrest and the Cardinals' reaction to it.

The men told police they were walking from the Bird's Nest, a popular party spot that is open in conjunction with the tournament every year, to Kirk's apartment and denied throwing rocks.

A Cardinals spokesman said the team was aware of the incident prior to drafting Kirk.

A three-year starter at Texas A&M, Kirk caught 71 passes for 919 yards and 10 touchdowns in his junior year, while also accumulating close to 700 return yards and two more touchdowns as a kick and punt returner, according to his Sports Reference player page.

If that's not bad enough, TMZ adds that Kirk was high on cocaine at the time of the arrest.
