The funny thing about trades is that you don't really know they've gone down until they've gone down. That is, unless you're the player and have been in on the dealings for a minute. Despite the fact that Lukaku's $96.7 million Manchester United signing was announced just today, Romelu Lukaku seemingly knew he had something to celebrate on July 2, as he was arrested for disturbing the peace at his Beverly Hills rager, according to TMZ Sports.
The cops tried to break up the party—held at a rental house under Lukaku's name, according to TMZ's sources—a whopping six times. Lukaku's new teammate Paul Pogba was posting like a million videos of him doing pseudo-soccer things at a pearly-white mansion in the hills, though it's not confirmed they're one in the same.
Just check this nonsense out:
And then, as if you don't feel bad enough about missing out on this dope mid-day party, Pogba started posting videos of him and Lukaku's sick new handshake:
Well, duh—that sick handshake is probably what launched the festivities. But those pesky neighbors didn't like what they heard, so they narc'd on them. In short, he was arrested, released on the scene—not taken into the station—and handed a citation.
Here is the full police statement, via BBC:
On July 2, 2017, at approximately 8:00 PM, Beverly Hills Police Department officers arrested a 24-year-old male subject by the name of Romelu Lukaku Bolingoli.
Bolingoli received a misdemeanour citation for Beverly Hills Municipal Code Violation 5-1-104 - Excessive Noise. The citation was issued after officers responded to five other noise complaints from the same location, which resulted in verbal warnings.
These noise violations occurred at a residence in Beverly Hills where Bolingoli was temporarily residing. Bolingoli was released at the scene with the citation and was not physically arrested.
Bolingoli is scheduled to appear at the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse on October 2, 2017.
The funny thing is that international soccer players probably love LA because they're not stopped in the streets every five seconds because they're recognizable. The shitty part about LA for them is that the cops don't recognize them either, so no freebies for the famous soccer players.
