Former England captain Wayne Rooney has been charged with drink driving, Cheshire Police said.
The Everton striker, 31, was stopped in a black Volkswagen Beetle in Wilmslow, Cheshire, at 2 a.m. on Friday.
Cheshire Police said he has been released on bail and is due to appear at Stockport Magistrates' Court on Sept. 18.
Rooney, the all-time top scorer for England and Manchester United, announced his immediate retirement from the national team last month.
It came after he rejoined his boyhood club Everton from United this summer after 13 years at Old Trafford.
He has been married to his high-school sweetheart Coleen since 2008 and they have three children together.
