Kirk and some of his friends were intoxicated and leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open when they were seen throwing rocks at cars outside the golf tournament on Feb. 3 and broke a window of at least one vehicle.

Here’s a statement a Cardinals spokesman proved Somers about the incident prior:

We spoke with Christian about it at length and also looked into it independently. Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future but while it remains an active legal matter, we won’t comment further.”
