On Feb. 3, as Kirk and his friends were leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open, they were seen throwing rocks at cars outside the tournament.

Kirk, a wide receiver who starred at Saguaro High School before playing for Texas A&M, was selected by the Cardinals in the second round of last month's National Football League draft.

The Arizona Cardinals selected Texas A&M receiver Christian Kirk in the second round of this year's NFL Draft, alluding to Kirk's high character as integral for the franchise.

The article citing the incident points out that new Cardinals Head Coach Steve Wilks went out of his way during his post-draft press conference to emphasize the importance of character in their new draft class, which included reportedly hard quarterback Josh Rosen.

Azcentral.com reported the arrest and the Cardinals' reaction to it. They were charged with criminal damage, and the case is still pending. "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".

A Cardinals spokesman said the team was aware of the incident prior to drafting Kirk. The group was intoxicated at the time, according to a statement from the Scottsdale Police.

While this doesn't appear to be a major problem going forward, Kirk should probably show better judgment.

Temptations will always be there, but they aren't worth the trouble.
