Los Angeles police have confirmed Romelu Lukaku was arrested in Beverly Hills and must appear or send representation to a US court on October 2.

Lukaku was given a “misdemeanour citation” on July 2 after officers warned him five times to turn down party music at the same location in the Californian city.

The 24-year-old, who is on the verge of a £90m transfer to Manchester United, has been holidaying in LA with prospective United team-mate Paul Pogba.

Sgt. Jay Kim revealed Lukaku was not handcuffed or booked for a misdemeanour of excessive noise, but must appear in court himself or send legal representation.

“On July 2, 2017, at approximately 8pm, Beverly Hills Police Department officers arrested a 24-year-old male subject by the name of Romelu Lukaku Bolingoli,” a Beverly Hills Police statement read.

“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.
