Everton striker Wayne Rooney has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, the BBC and Sky Sports reported on Friday.
The BBC said Rooney, 31, was stopped by police near his home in Cheshire, northwest England, on Thursday night.
Rooney was seen posing in a selfie with cricketer Jack McIver in a bar in Alderley Edge earlier that day.
McIver shared the photo of the pair in the Bubble Room on Instagram at around 1am, UAE time, that day with the comment: "International Break #legend".

Rooney, England's all-time record goal-scorer, announced his retirement from international football last week, having scored 53 goals in 119 appearances for his country.
He made his decision despite England manager Gareth Southgate offering to recall him for the World Cup qualifier against Malta on Friday.
Rooney re-joined boyhood club Everton in the pre-season from Premier League rivals Manchester United.
