Lukaku spent time in Los Angeles just prior to his £75 million move to Old Trafford and was arrested for disturbing the peace. The Press Association (h/t Guardian) reported Beverly Hills authorities accepted a no contest plea and provided a statement from the player's lawyer, Robert Humphreys:
“Mr Lukaku deeply regrets any inconvenience he caused the city of Beverly Hills. And he’s pleased by this settlement to make amends for his past conduct and pleased to have the matter behind him.”
It was in Beverly Hills that United team-mate and close friend Paul Pogba, with whom Lukaku spent much of the summer, confirmed the striker's move from Everton to United via Instagram:
In addition to the reimbursement paid for police time, Lukaku was also fined $515 (£384) in fees and penalties, which must be paid by March 19.
The Belgium international has enjoyed varied success since completing his move to Old Trafford in the summer, scoring seven goals in his first seven Premier League appearances for United before hitting a drought in form.
However, Lukaku has picked back up his scoring technique of late, although it was a lack of celebration that put him in the spotlight following his second goal in as many appearances on Sunday, via Sky Sports PL:
With a hectic summer now behind him, Lukaku will look to keep his exploits on the pitch instead of off it as he and the Red Devils seek to rake in silverware this season.
