Wayne Rooney was arrested in America for "public swearing and intoxication" last month and ordered to pay a $25 fine, court records have revealed.
The DC United star and former England captain was apprehended by Washington Airport Authority police officers on December 16th in Loudoun County, Virginia.
Public swearing and intoxication is catagorised as a minor offence, known as a class 4 misdemeanor in the US. He was released without bail and paid the small fine on January 4th, according to legal documents.
It was unclear whether or not the 33 year-old was picked up at the airport but the striker had posted a photo of himself at an event in Saudi Arabia in the days prior to the arrest.
