Wayne Rooney was arrested for being drunk in public after a booze and sleeping pill mix left him “disorientated” at an American airport.
The former England captain, 33, was detained on a charge of public intoxication on December 16 and was booked into the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center in Leesburg, Virginia, according to court documents.
The player’s spokesman said he was “disorientated” after taking prescribed sleeping tablets and drinking on a flight.
According to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Rooney triggered a door alarm before being arrested.
Rooney, who raked in £20million last year, paid a $25 fine on January 4.
In a statement, Rooney’s spokesman said: “Wayne Rooney was arrested and detained at Dulles airport following a long flight from Saudi Arabia after a one-day promotional business trip.
“He was approached by police who arrested him on a minor misdemeanour charge.
“He received a statutory automatic fine and was released shortly afterwards at the airport. The matter is now at an end.
“Wayne would like to put on record his appreciation for the manner he was treated by all involved.”
