Hope Solo Arrested on Assault Charges

United States women's soccer star Hope Solo was arrested on Friday night for allegedly hitting her sister and 17-year-old nephew at her home near Seattle, the Seattle Times reports.

According to police, the altercation occurred during a family gathering at Solo's home in Kirkland. She is being held without bail on two counts of investigation of domestic-violence assault.

Kirkland police later released a report with more details:

On June 21st 2014 and just before 1:00 am, Kirkland Police Department Patrol Units responded to a 911 call of a disturbance in the 10600 block of 124th AVE NE. The male caller stated that a female at the residence was “hitting people” and they could not get her to stop or to leave the house. Officer arrived and immediately heard the sounds of the disturbance inside the residence.

She was set to remain behind bars until a Monday hearing in municipal court in Kirkland, a suburb of Seattle in Washington state.

They entered and contacted several persons; one being Hope A Stevens (Solo) who appeared intoxicated and upset. As officers made contact, they observed visible injuries on Solo’s 17-year-old nephew and on Solo’s sister. After receiving statements of the persons involved, Officers determined that Solo was the primary aggressor and had instigated the assault.

Police saw "visible injuries" on her nephew and sister and described Solo as "the primary aggressor." They also said she had "instigated the assault."

Solo, 32, played on US gold medal Olympic women's football squads in 2008 and 2012 and appeared on the television show "Dancing With The Stars."

Representatives from U.S. Soccer and Solo's professional Seattle team, Reign FC, said they are aware of Solo's arrest but declined to immediately comment further.

A woman who on Saturday morning entered the residence where the incident occurred declined to speak to reporters.

Solo's husband, Jerramy Stevens, played nine seasons for the National Football League's Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Just a few hours before their wedding in November 2012, police arrested Stevens on the belief that he had assaulted Solo, but he was released because of insufficient evidence, and charges were never brought, according to media reports.

It was not clear whether Solo had a lawyer. A native of Richland, Washington, Solo in 2005 became starting goalkeeper for the U.S. Olympic Team. She started seven matches and earned seven shutouts that year, according to her Facebook page.
