EVERTON footballer Wayne Rooney has released a statement as he is given a two-year driving a ban and 100 hours of unpaid work after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

Wayne was arrested on the morning of Friday 1 September for driving over the prescribed alcohol limit.
And on Monday 18 September, the footballer attended a court hearing where he pleaded guilty to drink-driving.

The court was told: “Wayne wishes to express his genuine remorse for this terrible error of judgement that evening
“He’s let not only himself down but his family down. He also acknowledges he has let his fans down.”
Wayne has since released an official statement on his website, which reads: “Following today’s court hearing I want [to] publicly to apologise for my unforgiveable lack of judgement 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 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.”
Though the legal limit is 35 micrograms of alcohol when driving, Coleen Rooney’s husband had 104 micrograms of alcohol in his breath when he was stopped in Laura Simpson’s VW Beetle, which he was driving.

Giving the reasoning behind the two-year driving ban and 12-month community service order of 100 hours of unpaid work, Judge John Temple told the father-of-three: “This was a serious offence you committed, driving a motor vehicle while three times over the limit.

“The fact you were carrying a passenger is an aggravating factor. You were putting yourself and other road users at risk.”
The Everton player’s defendant Michael Rainford said: “He spoke to the police officers and was fully compliant both at the roadside and later at the police station. The road conditions at the time were deserted as it was around 2am and driving conditions were fine.

“Mr Rooney is a young man with no previous convictions. He is a young man with many fine qualities who regrets the mistake he made and he must show better judgement in the future.”
