Former Texas A&M wide receiver Christian Kirk arrested for disorderly conduct

Kirk, 21, who is from nearby Scottsdale and who played his college ball at Texas A&M, was arrested the night of February 3 outside the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament on charges of disorderly conduct and property damage. The other was Christian Kirk, who came off the board before they would have had the chance to draft him in the second round. He wound up going No. 47 overall to Arizona, which took quarterback Josh Rosen in the first round.

But head coach Steve Wilks was asked about Kirk following Tuesday's full-team mini-camp practice at the Cardinals facility and he said the team knew about the arrest.

"The suspects were intoxicated and leaving the WMPO". According to the publication, police were notified by security guards at the event, who alleged that Kirk and his friends were "high" at the time of the incident.

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.

It is unclear if the Cardinals were aware of the new information brought to light by TMZ.

When the Scottsdale PD arrived to the scene, one of the officers "immediately noticed Kirk's demeanor. He had a blank stare". "I further noticed the grinding movement of his jaw and continued blank stare", the arresting officer told TMZ. He ranks third in career receiving yards (2,857) and career touchdowns (26).
