Wayne Rooney Arrested for being drunk and swearing

Former England and Manchester United football star Wayne Rooney was arrested a month ago for being drunk and swearing in public.

The skilled footballer, according to reports on Sunday (Jan. 6, 2019) had to pay a fine of $25 on Friday (Jan. 4, 2019).


Court records obtained by Washington ABC 7 News and The Athletic showed that Rooney was arrested in Loudon County, Virginia, on December 16 for cursing and intoxication, a misdemeanor for which he was released from custody on his own recognizance before paying the fine and court costs on Friday.

Wayne Rooney was arrested by the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority at Dulles International Airport, which is located in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington DC.

The former England captain had just returned from a trip to Saudi Arabia. He posted a photo of himself on December 14 from Riyadh at an event.

Recall that Rooney is serving a two-year UK drink driving ban which emanated from a September 2017 arrest in England.

The 33-year-old forward was at the US capital last July, to sign a contract with DC United and taking the last-place Major League Soccer club into the playoffs in his first half-season with the squad.

Rooney was the centerpiece of United’s marketing campaign as the team opened a new stadium. The former Manchester United star said upon his arrival, that he looked forward to the challenge and enjoyed the relative anonymity afforded by suburban life in America.
