Former Three Lions and Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney was arrested a month ago for being drunk and swearing in public and paid a $25 fine Friday, as indicated by various reports on Sunday
Court records gotten by Washington ABC 7 News and The Athletic showed that the Manchester United forward was arrested in Loudon County, Virginia, on December 16 for reviling and intoxication, wrongdoing for which he has discharged from custody all alone recognizance before paying the fine and court costs on Friday.
Rooney was arrested by the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority at Dulles International Airport, which is situated in the northern Virginia rural areas of Washington.
A D.C. United statement read: “We are aware of news reports indicating that Wayne Rooney was arrested in December. We understand the media’s interest in this matter but believe this is a private matter for Wayne that D.C. United will handle internally. We have no further comment on the situation.”
A spokesman for Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said: “He was booked into the Loudoun County Adult Detention Centre on 16 December 2018, on a charge of public intoxication stemming from an arrest by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police (MWAA). “He was later released on a personal recognizance bond.”
The 33-year old evidently was at the airport after a trip from Saudi Arabia. He posted a photo of himself on December 14 from Riyadh at an occasion. Rooney is serving a two-year UK drink driving restriction stemming from a September 2017 arrest in England.
Rooney came to the US capital last July, securing a deal with DC United and taking the last-place Major League Soccer club into the playoffs in his first half-season with the team.
Rooney was the focal point of DC United’s marketing campaign as the team opened a new stadium, he said upon his arrival he anticipated the huge challenge and enjoyed in the relative obscurity managed by suburban life in America.
Following the judgement, Rooney said at the time: “I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong.”
