Rooney arrested in December for public intoxication, swearing

"Mr. Rooney was charged with public intoxication and transported to Loudoun County Detention Center to be held until sober".

Wayne Rooney has been spotted in Washington for the first time since news emerged he was arrested following a public intoxication incident at a United States airport.

The 33-year-old's spokesman moved to explain the circumstances that led to Rooney's arrest.

A spokesman has now said that the incident was due to mixing alcohol and sleeping pills on the flight from Saudi Arabia, where Rooney had been a guest on December 15 for the Riyadh Formula E Grand Prix.

"He was approached by police who arrested him on a minor misdemeanour charge".

"The matter is now at an end", the statement continued.

"Wayne would like to put on record his appreciation for the manner he was treated by all involved", he added.

It further offered to bug the offices and homes of Journal reporters reporting on the fund and leak information, according to the newspaper.

Loudoun County District Court records show Rooney paid $116 Friday to resolve the case, including a $25 fine and $91 in court costs.

The Washington-based team said in a statement that it was aware of news reports of the arrest but declined to comment beyond saying it "is a private matter that D.C. United will handle internally".

Worldwide soccer star Wayne Rooney was arrested last month on a public intoxication charge in Virginia after setting off an airport alarm, authorities said.

It's worth noting that two years ago, Rooney was barred from driving in the United Kingdom after he admitted to drunk driving in 2017.

He joined DC United from Everton in June previous year and enjoyed an impressive first season in the U.S. capital, scoring 12 goals in his debut campaign.

In November, Rooney was granted a farewell worldwide appearance in England's 3-0 friendly win over USA.
