The world-famous soccer star and celeb, Hope Solo sought an end to allegations against her in the court of law.

Hope solo wants to undo any incrimination charges pending against her. She was guilty of drunken assault against family members two months ago. 

Her lawyer sought to dismiss the charges and prove that there was no evidence to support the baseless accusations. After the hearing, Solo left all the while holding her husband’s hand. 

She reportedly had fought with her family members after they had allowed her entry in their residential premises. Solo is an Olympic Gold winner and had played often enough to be a recognizable figure in international circles. 

She has also appeared on DWTS and had an image of herself nearly nude in ESPN’s The Body Issue. The police were summoned to control Solo, who it is reported had gone nuts and was drunkenly lashing out at others. 

Solo later on showed contrition on Facebook. She admitted that people of her caliber and social status were held to higher standards and had to act likewise. 

"I understand that, as a public figure, I am held to a higher standard of conduct," she wrote. "I take seriously my responsibilities as a role model and sincerely apologize to everyone I have disappointed."

Solo also spoke of how she had certain problems with her family members especially her half-sister and nephew. She said that she was glad she had such a sincere family. 

Like all families, there’s too had its issues but ultimately they all emerged tougher and more loving after the fights. Hope Solo appeared at her half-sisters home all drunk cursing her husband and started making mischief. 

Then she used some rather insulting language with her nephew, who told her to get out of the house. At this she pulled him to the ground and started punching him in the face. 

Her half-sister broke a wooden broom over her head to stop her but it proved a useless tactic. That was when Hope attacked both her nephew and her half-sister giving them bruises. 

Her nephew took a gun and pointed it at her. She left but later on returned to create more havoc. That was when the police had to be finally called and now the next hearing is set for November 4th. 

Hope Solo's complete apology statement, she posted on her Facebook after the incident, is given below:

I would like to apologize to my fans, teammates, coaches, marketing partners and the entire US Soccer and Seattle Reign FC communities for my involvement in a highly unfortunate incident this past weekend. I understand that, as a public figure, I am held to a higher standard of conduct. I take seriously my responsibilities as a role model and sincerely apologize to everyone I have disappointed.

I love my family dearly. We, like all families, have our challenges but my sincere hope is that we are able to resolve this situation as a family. Adversity has always made us stronger and I know this situation will be no different.

I also would like to thank everyone who has reached out with messages of support and encouragement. I truly appreciate your loyalty, concern and well wishes.

Due to pending legal issues, I cannot comment further at this time. However, I am confident in the legal process and believe my name will be cleared.

I look forward to getting back on the field where I belong with both Seattle Reign FC and the US Women's National Team.
