Rooney questioned over spitting allegation
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been questioned by police after being accused of spitting at a photographer. The incident is alleged to have happened as the England star was leaving an Oxford Street restaurant with his wife.
The 22-year-old agreed to be questioned by police under caution after a complaint had been made by a third party. The unnamed photographer involved in the incident has also been interviewed by police.
According to the law of the land, spitting at someone is regarded common assault. A report will now be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service who will decide whether or not to press charges against Rooney.
