DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Former Texas A&M and current Arizona Cardinal wide receiver Christian Kirk was arrested in Scottsdale back in February for disorderly conduct and damaging property. 

AZCentral is reporting, Kirk and friends were allegedly throwing rocks at cars in February as they were leaving the Waste Management Pheonix 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 AZCentral.

The Cardinals were aware of the incident before drafting the wideout with the 47th overall pick last month.

"We knew about it," coach Steve Wilks said on Tuesday. "We did our own independent research on it and we felt very good about the information that we received and that's why we moved forward in really drafting him. As I stated before, we want to bring in great character guys and I think Christian is one of those guys."

Adding, "I think the situation is going to resolve itself here in a couple of months. And with it still being an on-going legal issue, I'm not going to go into it any further than that."
