Breaking Wayne Rooney was arrested in December

Rooney was arrested on December 16 and subsequently released and paid a $25 fine.

Rooney enjoyed an impressive first season in the MLS with DC United after joining from Everton on a free transfer in June 2018.

Rooney posted a photo of himself at an event in Saudi Arabia in the days prior to the arrest.

Rooney is also England's top scorer and second most-capped player with 53 goals in 120 worldwide appearances.

Rooney is now 13 months into a drink-driving ban and has completed 100 hours of community service which was part of his punishment.

He initially retired from global duty in August 2017 but came out of retirement for a final farewell appearance against the United States at Wembley in November.

Rooney did come out of retirement to play one final game with England - to promote new charity the Wayne Rooney Foundation - against the United States in November.

In September 2017, the footballer was arrested by Cheshire police after being caught driving over the drink-drive limit.

Russian Federation has dismissed suggestions that a former USA marine accused of spying could be involved in a prisoner swap. Officials haven't given details of Whelan's suspected activities and he was initially identified only as an American.

He was almost three times over the limit when he was pulled over by police at 2.10am on 1 September 2017. He also received a two-year driving ban and was docked two weeks' wages - around $380,000 - by Everton.

Coleen was at the time pregnant with their fourth child.

He said: "Following today's court hearing I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit".

"Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service".

Rooney was arrested in Loudoun County, Virginia, on December 16 by the Washington Airport Authority, according to court records which surfaced on Sunday.

'He was later released on a personal recognisance bond'.
