Christian Kirk has been vindicated.
After a story surfaced last month that the Arizona Cardinals second round pick from Texas A&M had been arrested in February after an incident at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, all charges have been dropped:

The initial report of Kirk’s arrest read like some juvenile, college like behavior. Now, it seems the blame for the incident had been misplaced from the beginning and that had been Kirk’s stance all along:
Now, it shows that this was in fact the reality of the situation.
This was never an issue for the Arizona Cardinals, they checked into the incident and were confident in Kirk’s innocence. They are also being vindicated for their belief in Kirk that he was in fact the person off the field that they had spoke so highly of since the draft.
Now, it’s time to put the past behind them and move on to football, something Kirk had already done.
