Wayne Rooney was arrested for public intoxication caused by being “disorientated” after taking sleeping tablets on a flight while drinking, says his spokesman.
The former England and Manchester United captain currently playing
plays for Major League Soccer club D.C. United was arrested on 16 December at Dulles International Airport in Virginia after returning from a one-day trip to Saudi Arabia.

In a statement, his spokesman said: “During the flight Wayne took a prescribed amount of sleeping tablets mixed with some alcohol consumption and consequently was disorientated on arrival.
