Hope Solo, in court after assault


Seattle Reign goalie Hope Solo appeared in court yesterday. Over the weekend, a 911 call brought the police at her house, catching the 32-year-old in an irritated state and visibly intoxicated. After hearing the witnesses out, the officers decided that Solo was the instigator of the fight that had occurred. The victims were her sister and her 17-year-old nephew who had pretty visible injuries.

Solo (real name Hope Amelia Stevens) was taken into custody and held, without bail, in the south King County jail, states the Kirkland Police Department. She is facing assault charges.

Even though Solo’s lawyer did not issue any statement regarding the incident, her soccer team posted in Twitter that they had acknowledge the situation and “are now gathering information.”

The soccer star is no stranger to domestic disputes, however. In November 2012, the 32-year-old got into a fight with her fiancée at the time, Jerramy Stevens. He was arrested for fourth-degree domestic violence but no actual charges were made. The judge ordered his release immediately and they got married one day later.
