Robert Humphreys, defending Lukaku, entered a no contest plea in court in Los Angeles on Monday and paid $450 USD to reimburse police for their time.

“Mr Lukaku deeply regrets any inconvenience he caused the city of Beverly Hills,” the lawyer said after the hearing. “And he’s pleased by this settlement to make amends for his past conduct and pleased to have the matter behind him.”

James Eckart, representing Beverly Hills authorities, accepted the plea to the lesser charge of a disturbance of the peace infraction after the 24-year-old striker was arrested and accused of a misdemeanor carrying up to six months in jail.

Commissioner Jane Godfrey, overseeing the case, ordered Lukaku to pay a further $515 (£384) in fines, fees and penalties by 19 March 2018.

Officers from Beverly Hills police department arrested the Belgium international at around 20:00 on 2 July 2017, around eight days before his transfer from Everton was completed.

Along with the police reimbursement, he must pay a $100 fine, a $375 penalty assessment set by the judge and a $40 security fee, Los Angeles Airport Courthouse was told.


Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
