Hope Solo is not in prison anymore over charges of beating up her nephew and sister.
Hope Solo has been released from the cooler. She has said that she had nothing to do with physically abusing her teenage nephew and sister at a party over the weekend.
Hope Solo belongs in Team USA and is a female soccer player par excellence. She had decided to opt for plea bargaining. Solo was ordered by the court to stay clear of the two abused people.
She remains under suspicion though and so she will be summoned to court in August again. Hope’s lawyer stated that she was not a criminal. In fact, the lawyer stated that Hope Solo was the injured party.
Hope Solo is "not guilty of any crime," stated her attorney. "In fact, our investigation reveals that Hope was assaulted and injured during this unfortunate incident."
The police say otherwise since they had found her to be rather disorderly and drunk as a skunk during the bout which landed her in jail. And their version of the story is very different since they found the victims to be injured in the ordeal.

The whole affair reeks of misunderstandings and mistakes made in an inebriated state. According to docs obtained by TMZ, "Hope Solo's 17-year-old nephew told police he PULLED A GUN on the soccer star to try to get her to stop attacking him ... but it didn't work."
Her 17-year-old nephew spoke of how she came all distraught and drunk to his home and started accusing him of talking foul stuff about her. Then she said that he was fat and crazy and would never be a good athlete.
The fact of the matter was that Hope Solo had missed a flight and was mad about that blunder of hers. As he left for another room, Hope called him something really vulgar. His nephew said that Solo "called me a p**sy because I called my mom."
The result was that he too responded in kind. "I then told her to get her c*nt face out of my house," the boy said to police.
Then she just went berserk and started beating him and pulling his hair. He then proceeded to get an old gun and threatened to shoot her if she carried on in her abusive behavior. Yet she continued to harass him.
"I then went into a back room and got an old gun that does not work, pointed it at her and she kept coming at me. She didn't leave but walked around me cornering me like a shark," stated Solo's nephew.
Even after the cops came, upon being given a buzz by the nephew, she re-entered the home and then hit her sister (his mother). Whether there is any truth to Hope’s story or his nephew’s and sister’s remains to be decided on in the court of law.
