Other than his poor form, Marcus Rashford has made the news once again, this time for his brother, Dane Rashford. The 31-year-old, who also manages Marcus’s profile as his agent, has been reportedly arrested in Miami, Florida
Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford also had a disappointing evening in the Champions League Matchday 4 after getting sent off due to a red card resulting in another 4-3 loss at Copenhagen. Later the reports of his brother’s arrest emerged from the US.
Who is Dane Rashford?
The 31-year-old, Dane Rashford was born in 1993 in Wythenshawe, Manchester, England. He is the elder brother of the Rashford family, which also includes Marcus Rashford and Dwaine Maynard. While Marcus Rashford is a professional footballer, his other two brothers are in business.
Dane is a registered FA intermediary and currently serves as the director of DN May Sports Management. He has worked closely with his brother, Marcus Rashford, as his agent. Furthermore, his agency played a significant role in securing multiple contract extensions and the high wages he earns at the Premier League club. Maynard, another sibling of Marcus, also manages the Manchester United attacker’s profile.
According to reports, Dane was arrested by the Miami police on charges of domestic violence on October 20th of last month. He appeared in court the following day, where the allegations were presented, and his bail amount for release from custody was set at $1,500 US dollars. He was released after the bail was paid a week later, following his arrest.
It’s not the first time Dane has made headlines. Earlier in 2019, he and Trent-Alexander Arnold’s brother were attacked and robbed by a group of men at gunpoint. They lost their car, wallets, and expensive watches while having breakfast at a Caribbean restaurant. But, he is now on the other side as the alleged offender.
Why is Dane Rashford behind bars?
Reportedly, Dane has been charged with a misdemeanor battery case registered under the alleged domestic violence offense. The Rashford family has not made any official statement regarding this case; it is said they are considering resolving it soon. The next hearing is scheduled for later this month on November 27th.
Moreover, the State of Florida court has issued a ‘stay away’ order during the pre-trial, which suggests that Dane cannot contact the victim. According to reports, police officials have informed that the case is still active, and they will be speaking to the victim after receiving formal approval from the UK Embassy.
