According to a report on Sunday, Rooney was charged for public intoxication and was booked into the Loudoun County Adult Detention Centre on December 16 2018.
The charge came as a result of his arrest by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police.
Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said, Rooney was later released the same day on the ground of personal recognition.
No reason was given why the authorities delayed the details of Rooney’s arrest for more than two weeks.
Rooney last played for his club DC United on November 2, when his side was knocked out of the MLS Cup. He lost a penalty in the match after the match had gone into extra time and then penalties.
When asked about the issue, DC United, said they would deal with the matter internally, but no one could tell how far this would go as the player is ageing and is always involved in many controversies.
