WAYNE Rooney had a cosy chat with a barmaid and jumped in her car alone on a ten-hour booze-up.
The footie ace, 33, and Vicki Rosiek knocked back shots until 2.30am.
He was earlier spotted using a cash machine outside a Hooters bar in Florida. Roo put his marriage to Coleen in jeopardy when caught in a woman’s car 18 months ago.
A source said: “He’s playing with fire.”
The ex-England skipper met up with DC United team-mates last weekend. During the ten-hour bender he hooked up separately with barmaid Vicki Rosiek who he had met days earlier.
She drove them to a bar serving Pink Pussy cocktails, where the pair knocked back shots and Rooney struggled to get a DJ to understand his accent.
His latest partying will be a huge blow to long-suffering Coleen, who was thought to be 900 miles away with their four sons at home in Washington DC.
Rooney’s night out in Clearwater Beach, Florida, comes 18 months after he was caught drunk at the wheel of Laura Simpson’s VW Beetle in Cheshire.
Just two months ago he was arrested for being drunk in public at a US airport.
A source said: “Coleen has already warned him about his behaviour and will hit the roof over this. He is playing with fire getting into a woman’s car alone with his history.
“One minute he’s on a pub crawl with male friends, then suddenly he’s moving between other bars with a pretty blonde.
“At the very least it will worry Coleen to see Wayne drinking and acting this way while away from family.”
Rooney and fellow DC United stars were staying 12 nights in Florida for training ahead of the new season.
At 4.20pm last Sunday he started drinking at the Pier House 60 marina hotel while watching American football’s Super Bowl.
He caught up with team-mates to go bar-hopping. At one stage Rooney was spotted using a cash machine outside the founding branch of Hooters — the restaurant chain where girls serve food and drink in skimpy outfits.
Rooney and a team-mate then settled in for a few pints at The Brown Boxer.
Also there was Vicki. She told The Sun on Sunday she had met Rooney a few days earlier at the resort’s Toucan’s Bar and Grill, where she works.
She added: “I ran into him at The Brown Boxer on the day of the Super Bowl and we had a few drinks.
“I didn’t know who he was at first until one of my colleagues told me.
“He was on his own. When I saw him, I said, ‘Oh hey, I waited on you before’. Then we hung out.
“There was a group of us there. I was sitting there, just bulls****ing with him. He seemed down to earth, just a regular dude a little shy and quiet.”
The pair chatted for ten minutes at The Brown Boxer.
Vicki said she offered Rooney, who was drinking light beer Michelob Ultra, a lift to the next bar.
They left together, got into her sporty Nissan and she drove half a mile to The Shipwreck at 12.30am.
Vicki, who lives in Clearwater but hails from Pennsylvania, explained: “All the bar staff hang out together, so when you get people here from out of town, we want to lead them in the right direction.
“Everyone was like, ‘We are going to The Shipwreck?’ I didn’t want to leave him there, so I said, ‘Hey, do you want a ride?’

We hung out there for a few hours. I think he (Rooney) just wanted someone to talk to without talking about soccer. He just wanted to be a regular person and have a beer with everyone.”
Rooney stayed over two hours, chatting cosily with Vicki. She said he left at 2.30am and then she left at 3am, in a car with a friend.
While there, Rooney asked DJ Matt Valet to play Mumford & Sons hit Timshel — but couldn’t make himself understood. Matt told The Sun on Sunday: “He came over to my booth halfway through the night.
“He was requesting a song but his accent was very thick.
“In the end, he had to type it into my phone. I’d never heard of the song and unfortunately it wasn’t in my playlist. He seemed bummed out when I could not play it.
“It seemed like he just wanted to hang out with some normal people.”
Rooney was also seen knocking back shots at the bar.
The venue is famous for its Pink Pussy, a lemon-rum and watermelon cocktail.
Another barmaid said: “He was here for a few hours and kept it pretty low-key.
“He came in with one of the other local barmaids called Vicki.
“They were hanging out here together with a few other people.
“Apparently locals were buying him shots and they were knocking them back together.”

Coleen — mum to Kai, nine, Klay, five, Kit, two, and baby Cass — read Rooney the riot act after the Laura Simpson car incident in 2017.
The source added of his latest night out: “She will be fuming, especially as she feels she’s sacrificed a lot to move to the States for him.”
“Coleen doesn’t like living in Washington. She’s unhappy being so far away from her friends at home, and blames Wayne for dragging her thousands of miles away.”
Haven't we been her before, Roo?
WAYNE’S relationship with childhood sweetheart Coleen has been rocked by a string of misdemeanours.
In 2004, the-then teenage Everton sensation slept with a 48-year-old prostitute. He was in trouble again in 2010 when he cheated with escorts Helen Wood and Jenny Thompson.
Boozed-up Wayne was arrested in 2017 driving home party girl Laura Simpson, 30, in her car.
He met her on a bender in Chester days before a Manchester derby. Laura later admitted a “kiss and cuddle” and said: “He kept admiring my boobs.”
Furious Coleen, in Spain at the time, flew home for crisis talks.
Rooney issued a grovelling apology as he was banned and given 100 hours’ community service for drink-driving.
Rooney was also arrested for being drunk at a Washington airport last December.
