Former England captain Wayne Rooney was fined two weeks wages by Everton after conviction for drink-driving.


The BBC reported on Wednesday the money will be donated to the Toffees' community scheme.

 

Wayne Rooney was arrested Cheshire after being stopped by police on Sept. 1, according to BBC.

Rooney was recorded as three times over the legal limit and later pleaded guilty to the charge in court on Monday. He received a two-year driving ban and £170 fine from Stockport Magistrates' Court along with 100 hours of community service.

 

"I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgment in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong,” Rooney commented after receiving the verdict.

 

"I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologise 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."
