English football star Wayne Rooney was arrested in December at the Dulles Airport outside Washington, D.C. for public intoxication, according to local police.

Rooney, who joined the U.S. soccer team DC United in mid-2018, was booked into the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on December 16, on a charge of public intoxication stemming from an arrest by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police (MWAA), a police spokesman said.

Rooney was later released on a personal recognizance bond.
