According to reports in the US, former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was arrested on the 16th of December for public intoxication at Washington Airport.
The DC United player allegedly committed the offence last year and had to pay a $25 fine as well as $91 in costs according to Virginia court records, though with his £46 million a year deal with the MLS club, you doubt England's record goal scorer will care too much about the fines.

A spokesman for Loudoun County Sheriff's Office confirmed the forward's arrest, revealing that Rooney was later released on a personal recognised bond:
He was booked into the Loudoun County Adult Detention Centre on 16 December 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 recognisance bond.
Following today's court hearing I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong.
I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.
Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.
