WAYNE Rooney has risked the wrath of wife Coleen Rooney after his arrest for public intoxication, amid fears the incident “pours more shame on them”.

Wayne, 33, was nicked for being intoxicated and abusive at a US airport after “triggering a door alarm” when he arrived on a flight from Saudi Arabia.

A spokesman for England’s record goalscorer said he was left “disorientated” after he mixed drinks and a sleeping pill.

It is not known if Coleen knew about the incident last month, which he was charged $25 and paid $91 in costs for last week.

But a source suggests all was not well over the incident because it “pours more shame on them”.

The source told Mirror Online: “Whenever Coleen is not around it seems Wayne tends to go off the rails. 

“She had hoped moving to America would see a fresh start for the family putting behind Wayne’s previous problems.

“Coleen loves the lifestyle in the States. She can go about her business without anyone knowing who she is”


“Coleen loves the lifestyle in the States. She can go about her business without anyone knowing who she is. 

“But this latest arrest just pours more shame on them.”

It comes after Wayne hit the headlines in 2017 after he admitted drink-driving and was banned from driving for two years.

He was found by police behind the wheel with party girl Laura Simpson in the passenger seat.

It led Coleen to release a furious statement, saying: “Before the headlines start. No, I’m not taking Wayne back as he’s never left.

“Yes, it has been a s*** time, and yes, time was spent apart and I thought my marriage might have been at an end.

She added: “Wayne doesn’t get portrayed for the person he is in the press, he has always had a hard time. 

“I’m not going to list his good qualities as a person as I don’t think he deserves it at this time but one thing is that he is a brilliant dad. He’s made silly and selfish mistakes, some he’s learnt from, some obviously not. 

“However maybe that will change?”

But Wayne could also face the fury of his sponsors.

US brand executive Thomas Rogers told Mirror Online: “Nowhere in the world is a clean-cut image more important to a sports star than in America.

“The merest hint that a brand could be brought into disrepute is enough to see multi-million-dollar deals ended. 

“Rooney will have to expiate himself if big names are to want to put their brands and their buck behind him.”
