Rooney quizzed by police over spitting incident

Wayne Rooney was questioned by police after allegedly spitting at a paparazzi photographer, Scotland Yard said today.

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.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: '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.

'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.'
