Romelu Lukaku Ordered To Pay Beverly Hills Police Department £340 Over Noise Complaints
When Romelu Lukaku was on the verge of signing for Manchester United, the 24-year-old was being courted by 'Agent Pogba', a man who succeeded in helping the Belgian engineer a move to Old Trafford alongside super-agent Mino Raiola.
To celebrate the move, Lukaku and best mate Pogba had quite the house party in Los Angeles. Unfortunately for the pair, a number of cops paid a visit to their apartment for excessive noise complaint and the rest is history.
Lukaku was cited for a misdemeanor after five verbal warnings at his Beverley Hills pad and as a result, appeared in a Los Angeles court in October this year.
Earlier in the year, we reported that Lukaku was given a citation which could lead to a fine from the police.
It has now been confirmed that the Belgium international has been ordered to pay Beverly Hills Police Department £340 over noise complaints at parties he held in the summer - a sum that has certainly caused a reaction on social media.
