Manchester United Striker Romelu Lukaku To Pay US Police Over Noise Complaints
Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has agreed to pay compensation to Beverly Hills police after they responded to five noise complaints at a house he was renting in the summer.
The 24-year-old was arrested in July – the week before United signed him from Everton for an initial £75m.
The Belgian will pay $450 (£340) to reimburse police for the callouts.
That will mean the charge is reduced from a misdemeanour, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail.
Instead, Lukaku will be charged with a disturbance of the peace infraction, which carries a $100 (£76) fine plus other costs and penalties.
The case will be heard again at Los Angeles Airport Courthouse on 18 December.
