Lukaku Pleads Not Guilty In Noise Charge

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has pleaded not guilty after he was arrested in the United States earlier this year following a noise complaint.

The 24-year-old was given a “misdemeanor citation” in July after police responded to five other noise complaints at a Beverly Hills house.

The Belgium international did not appear in court in Los Angeles on Monday.

His lawyer, Robert Humphreys, entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf.

Commissioner Jane Godfrey adjourned the case to Los Angeles Airport Courthouse on 21 November.

After the hearing, city attorney James Eckart said, if found guilty, the striker faces both a fine and paying a sum to cover the cost of the police call-outs that occurred over five days.
