Wayne Rooney has been arrested in the US accused of public intoxication and swearing charges, according to police.
The former Manchester United star, who now plays for American team DC United, was taken into custody on December 16 in Virginia.
It is believed the 33-year-old, who now places for American team DC United, was detained at Washington’s Dulles airport, which is near the club’s stadium
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 arrested by the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority, although it is unclear if he was held at the airport or elsewhere in the vicinity.
In September 2017, Rooney admitted drink-driving on a night out when he was caught driving a woman’s Volkswagen Beetle when nearly three times the legal limit.
He was banned from driving for two years and ordered to carry out unpaid work in the community.
