Back in the summer time, Romelu Lukaku celebrated his holiday a little too much, and way too noisily. Lukaku rented a Beverly Hills mansion, where he hosted a party that was way too raucous for his neighbors.

In early July, a week before his move up in pay grade and transfer to Manchester United, he was arrested, but not taken into custody, by the Beverly Police Department.

He was charged with a noise violation, as the police warned him on five previous occasions to turn the music down. On the sixth visit, they booked him.

Lukaku, who signed a £75 million deal when he moved from Everton in the summer, has now agreed to pay $450 (£340) to reimburse the Beverly Hills police. By paying the fine, the Belgian has now reached a deal to reduce the charges from a misdemeanor, a charge that included a maximum sentence of six months in jail.

Now disturbance of the peace is the infraction Lukaku is charged with, and it carries a $100 (£76) fine plus other costs and penalties, according to reporting in the BBC. The case will be heard again at the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse on December 18th.
