Footballer Wayne Rooney has last Friday started his 100 hours community service, painting benches at a garden center for disabled adults close to his £6million home.The community service is part of his sentence after being caught drink-driving the car of a lady.
The married footballer and father-of-three was driving Laura Simpson’s car back to her house.Rooney met Laura who is an office worker in a bar the night he was arrested while his wife Coleen who is pregnant with their fourth child was on holiday with the kids.
After his arrest and subsequent charge, Rooney admitted drink driving in court.
The garden center where he is carrying out his service is close to his luxurious £6million home in Prestbury, Cheshire, but that did not stop him from being driven to the center.
Ironically, garden center is the same place Carlos Tevez his former Manchester United teammate was ordered to work after he was banned four years ago.
Rooney who was arrested on September 1 has since apologized for his actions and said he hoped to make amends for with his community service.
Meanwhile, his wife has not been seen wearing her wedding ring since the incident took place.She had asked her husband to take a leave from work to attend to their marriage which was already troubled.
