This gal is Laura Simpson; she is the social worker who married soccer player Wayne Rooney drove home in her car after a night drinking; Rooney was stopped at 2:00 a.m and charged with DUI; all of this happened while his pregnant wife Coleen was in Spain on a holiday with her family.
29-year-old Laura Jade Simpson a single mother of three, met Rooney in the Bubble Room cocktail bar; the brunette is a social worker in Manchester according to the Sun, Laura a Lettings office manager, spoke candidly about her wild night with Rooney, although she was too drunk to remember where the cop pulled them over.
“I got to the bar around 10pm. He introduced himself with his mate and we sat down and had a talk and had a laugh.
“We had three bottles of prosecco and a couple of vodkas between us. Then we left. I got taken out the front, while the taxi I got put in was made to go around the back of the bar to pick Wayne up.
Too Drunk to Remember
“We got the taxi to go and pick up my car, we picked up my car. I was too drunk to drive and as it was just me and him he offered to drive. I don’t really know where we were planning on going.
“and couldn’t even tell you where we got picked up because I was quite drunk. We were sharing bottles of wine and because we were sat down it just hits you a little bit harder doesn’t it.”
We were just driving and then there was just blue flashing lights behind us. Wayne was pi**ed right off. And really worried about it.
“I didn’t know what to make of it, it all happened so fast. It was a whirlwind. I don’t know if it’s because I was that drunk but he didn’t seem that drunk to me.”
The police didn’t take a statement from me. I didn’t have any involvement with the police side of things they kept me well away. The police drove my car to my friend’s house where I was meant to be staying that night — and where I ended up staying.
“I think them taking it to my friend’s was down to Wayne to be honest. I wasn’t in the car, they took him out of the car and I didn’t see him again.
