Former England captain Wayne Rooney, who moved to Major League Soccer’s DC United last June, was arrested in the USA and was issued with a fine before being released without bail.
The former Manchester United and England captain was ordered to pay a small fine of $31 along with around $115 in costs before being released without bail.
Rooney was arrested in Loudoun County, Virginia, on December 16, 2018 by the Washington Airport Authority.
England’s all-time top goalscorer, 33, inked a big money, three-and-a-half year deal with MLS side DC United last summer after returning to boyhood club Everton for a season following the end of his 13-year career at Old Trafford.
In 2017, Rooney was ordered to do 100 hours’ community service after being arrested for drunk-driving after being found to be three times over the legal limit. He also received a two-year driving ban and was docked two weeks’ wages – around $380,000 – by Everton.
