Former Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney has been arrested by Cheshire Police on the alleged scepticism of drunk driving, reports The Daily Mirror.
Rooney, who recently joined his boyhood club Everton on a free transfer, was on his way home after a night out and was stopped by the cops near his home in Cheshire on Thursday night. The 31-year-old trained at Everton’s Finch Farm training ground on Thursday and reportedly had a night out. He was traveling back home when all this happened.
A police statement read: “Cheshire Police has charged a man with drink-driving following a vehicle stop in Wilmslow.
“The man was arrested shortly after 2.00am today, Friday 1 September, after officers stopped a black VW Beetle on Altrincham Road, Wilmslow.
“Wayne Rooney, aged 31, has since been charged with driving whilst over the prescribed limit.”
Rooney has been living in his £6 million home in Prestbury for almost 12 years now. And reports claim that he, his wife Coleen, and their three children, Kai (7), Klay (4) and Kit (1) are planning to move to a new purpose-built £10 million mansion in the Cheshire countryside soon. Coleen recently announced that she is pragnent with the couple’s fourth child, but refused to comment on the sex of the child.
“When it came to the crunch at the scan, I had thought I’d want to know – but it turns out I didn’t! It just gives us that little bit more anticipation towards the end and when I’m in labour and wondering what it’s going to be. It’s quite nice for everyone around us as well; they’ll be at the end of the phone waiting for us to say whether it’s a boy or a girl and what name we have chosen.”
Rooney, who is Manchester United and England’s all time top-scorer, recently announced his retirement from international football with immediate effect, hence, he won’t be playing for the Three Lions in their World Cup qualifier against Malta on Friday. Furthermore, even though Rooney has made himself very clear about England’s job, Gareth Southgate refused to rule out the 31-year-old of the 2018 World Cup. “Have I seen players change their minds? I think we all have.
“Do I see the value of a senior player and what he may add in terms of experience and developing some of the other players? Definitely.
“Part of that question should go to Wayne – you’ve got to respect his decision and the thinking behind that.”
