Former England international footballer Wayne Rooney has been banned from driving for two years after pleading guilty to a drink-driving charge.
Rooney was stopped and charged by police in Wilmslow, Cheshire while driving a black Volkswagen Beetle at 2 a.m. on Friday September 1.
Appearing at Stockport Magistrates Court, Monday, Rooney was also ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community order.
Following this, he is banned of driving for two years. Earlier when this incident happened this month, he published a public appology message to the world and his family.
“I want publicly to apologize for my unforgivable lack of judgment in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong.
“I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologize to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.
“Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.”
