Everton forward Wayne Rooney has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, according to multiple reports.

The 31-year-old, who recently retired from international football, was reportedly pulled over by Cheshire Police on Thursday evening.

The news first appeared in The Mirror but reports have also featured on Sky News, BBC, and Liverpool Echo.

A spokeswoman for Cheshire police told Business Insider: “We can neither confirm or deny reports of arrests so we have no comment at this time.”

Rooney re-joined his boyhood football club Everton after a decorated 13-year stay at Manchester United. He has scored two goals from his first three Premier League games for Everton this season.
