Wayne Rooney arrested for public intoxication in Washington


Wayne Rooney was arrested for public intoxication and swearing in Washington last month.

The England legend, who now plays for DC United, committed the offence on December 16 last year.

He was arrested by the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority for a class four misdemeanour before being released without bail.

A hearing was due to take place on January 24, but this has been waived after he paid a €25 fine with €91 costs earlier this month.

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 (MWAA).

“He was later released on a personal recognizance bond.”

Rooney was in Saudi Arabia on December 15 for the Riyadh Formula E Grand Prix.

He was pictured in Cheshire three days later as he returned home for Christmas.

It was claimed that Rooney had sex with a 48-year-old prostitute as a teenager after bursting onto the scene at Everton.

He made the headlines again when he cheated on his pregnant wife Coleen with two escorts – Helen Wood and Jenny Thompson.
