Seattle Reign and USWNT goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested on Friday night after police were called to her Kirkland, WA home to investigate. Solo is being held, without bail, on two counts of investigation of domestic-violence assault.

Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray said that officers were called to Solo’s home, which she shares with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, to investigate an assault and noise disturbance. “There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation,” Murray said.

The police said Solo got into an argument with relatives and, at some point during the party, allegedly assaulted both her sister and her nephew. Murray stated, “There were visible injuries on them.”

Solo, a native of Richland, WA, returned to her home state as a goalkeeper for Seattle Sounders Women in 2012. She was allocated to Seattle Reign FC in January 2013. Solo has been first-choice ‘keeper for the United States Women’s National Team since 2005, and recorded her record-tying 71st career shutout last week, when the USWNT beat France 1-0 in a friendly.

A statement from U.S. Soccer reads: “We are aware of the situation. At this point, we don’t have any further comments.”

    The real tragedy was that she married Jerramy Stevens.

    Jerramy Stevens is a bad man.

    Not really surprised someone that would marry him has issues.

    How this will probably turn out, given that she’s a name athlete–

    She got drunk, got into an argument with her sister, the nephew intervened, she pounded on both. Jerramy, who was uninvolved, probably broke up the catfight. He’ll be charged, she won’t, and nothing will come of it except that HE will wind up having to take one of those “anger management” classes that do nothing but fatten the wallets of those who run them.

    Just another billion dollar airport with a hundred dollar control tower.

    They were probably just filming a reality show and needed to provide some content.

    Didn’t the same, exact thing happen a year or two ago? And cops found Stevens hiding behind a bed?

      The article said in part…

      “The police said Solo got into an argument with relatives and, at some point during the party, allegedly assaulted both her sister and her nephew. Murray stated, “There were visible injuries on them.”

      So, unless Hope attached her sister and her nephew a year or two ago that you referenced, I’m guessing the exact same thing didn’t happen this time as that time…

    She’s a head case. Would love to see the USA women’s team drop that arrogant b#*ch.

    thugs gonna thug

    she should never see another female US match. might be a double standard but women sports should hold themselves up to a higher standard when it comes to abuse since a large amount of their audience is little girls.

    Stevens is a clown, and not surprised his old lady is.

    By the way these people should stop throwing parties.

    No Hope for Hope…

    Wait or is it there’s no hope in dope?

    Either way, stay classy two…

    Just remember keep your beer and violence the same at your house parties……
