I'm glad he is getting the penalty for this crime! Good that he didn't just get off because of his celeb status! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-41298649 Former England captain Wayne Rooney has appeared in court and admitted drink-driving. He was arrested when police stopped a car in Wilmslow, Cheshire, in the early hours on 1 September. The 31-year-old was banned from driving for two years and ordered to perform 100 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community order. Rooney was also ordered to pay £170 when he appeared at Stockport Magistrates' Court. The Liverpool-born player rejoined his boyhood club this summer, 13 years after leaving for Manchester United. The father-of-three is also England's record goalscorer.
