The Derby player-coach allegedly violated government guidelines on social distancing by speaking with Man City side back Kyle Walker.
The two are neighbors and crossed paths on a Friday evening walk with their families.
According to the Sun, a policewoman was on communication nearby and ordered the two players to go home separately, and they were quickly transferred.
The meeting took place at Prestbury Golf Course, where Rooney took two of his children, while Walker was there with his three children and ex-partner Annie Kilner.
The kids of the two players attend the same local school and allegedly quarreled, which sparked the conversation between the two pros.
A source told the newspaper, “The families stopped to speak when the police suddenly attacked them.
“It was all completely innocent and unintentional. “
Walker already made the headlines this week for breaking the lock rules earlier this week after the Sun announced that he had been involved in an orgy with two female escorts.
The British international apologized after the party’s report was released in his £ 8,000-a-month apartment in Cheshire.
Escort Louise McNamara, 21, and a 24-year-old Brazilian call girl were invited to the property on Tuesday by Walker and a male friend, who paid them £ 2,200 in cash.
Walker’s statement said, “I want to take this opportunity to apologize publicly for the choices I made last week.
“I understand that my position as a professional footballer carries the responsibility of being a model.
“As such, I want to apologize to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for abandoning them.
“There are heroes who are making a vital difference to society right now, and I wanted to help and recognize their incredible sacrifices and their rescue work over the past week.
“My actions are in direct contrast to what I should have done regarding the lock. “
Rooney launched a passionate defense of footballers after they were attacked by Secretary of State for Health Matt Hancock, who called on top stars to cut wages to help rescue coronaviruses.
Coronavirus in sport
Rooney said, “The way the last few days have gone is a shame. First, Health Secretary Matt Hancock, in his daily update on the coronavirus, said that Premier League players should cut their wages.
“It was supposed to give the nation the latest information on the greatest crisis we have experienced in our lives. Why was the salary of footballers even in his head? Was he desperate to divert attention from the way his government was dealing with this pandemic? ”
The former captain of Man Utd and of England went on to say that he would be ready to take a cut in wages if asked to do so, but admitted that he was in a privileged position over some of his Derby colleagues.
Representatives of Wayne Rooney declined to comment.
