United States women’s national team and Seattle Reign FC goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested early Saturday for investigation of two counts of domestic-violence assault, as first reported by the Seattle Times.
Solo, listed as Hope Amelia Stevens in the South Correctional Entity (Des Moines, Wash.) inmate registry, “was arrested overnight for allegedly striking her sister and her nephew at the Kirkland home she shares with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, according to police,” the Times reports. Police say Solo was “intoxicated and upset.” Solo’s nephew is 17 years old.
