Former Texas A&M wide receiver Christian Kirk’s brief dustup with the law appears to be over.
Almost four months after the initial arrest, the charges against Kirk have been dismissed, according to Ian Rapoport with NFL.com.

The original incident happened back in February when Kirk was leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Scottsdale Police arrested Kirk after he allegedly began throwing rocks at cars with friends and broke at least one window. The Arizona Cardinals said in a statement they were aware of what happened before they took Kirk in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Before returning to his hometown to play professionally, Kirk caught 26 touchdowns and totaled more than 1,800 yards on kick and punt returns during his time at Texas A&M.
Kirk also released a statement on Twitter after the charges were dropped. He said in part that he was “confident that the facts and the truth would ultimately validate the type of person that I am.”
