Wayne Rooney questioned by police after alleged spitting incident


Wayne Rooney has been questioned by police after allegedly spitting at a photographer, according to the Metropolitan Police.

The Manchester United and England forward was interviewed under caution after the incident near London's Oxford Street on Tuesday evening. The 22-year-old was reportedly leaving a restaurant with his new wife Coleen.

He was spoken to by police at a neutral venue after a third party made the complaint shortly afterwards. In law, deliberately spitting at someone is an offence of common assault.

A report is expected to be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service who will decide on whether to bring charges.

"At 12.10am on Wednesday we received a third party allegation that a photographer had been spat at by an individual outside a restaurant in Hanway Street, W1," a police spokesman said.

"Officers established the incident occurred at approximately 10.20pm on Tuesday evening. The alleged suspect, a 22-year-old male, was spoken to by police.

"He was not arrested and did not attend a police station. Inquiries continue."
