Wayne Rooney arrested in US on public intoxication charge at DC airport
Former England and Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has been arrested in the US on a public intoxication charge.
Rooney, who now plays for DC United, was taken into custody after an alleged incident at Washington’s Dulles airport, which is near the club’s stadium.
A spokesman for Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said: “He was booked into the Loudoun County Adult Detention Centre on December 16 2018, on a charge of public intoxication stemming from an arrest by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police.
“He was later released on a personal recognisance bond.”
Court files state he paid a fine of $25 (£19.65) and costs of $91 (£71.50) over his latest offence. The documents also say he was charged under the Virginian law of “public swearing/intoxication”.
Drink drive conviction
In the UK, Rooney admitted drink-driving in September 2017 after a night out when he was caught driving a woman’s Volkswagen Beetle.
He was nearly three times the legal limit, banned from driving for two years and ordered to carry out unpaid work in the community.
Rooney last played for England in November last year – a friendly against the USA in what became a defacto testimonial two years after his last full England game.
He moved to DC United last season and helped transform the team’s performance.
Two days before the arrest he posted an image online of himself in a car at the Riyadh Formula E championship race in Saudi Arabia.
