Soccer star Hope Solo, the woman who played on two gold-medal winning Olympic women’s teams and appeared on TV’s “Dancing with the Stars,” 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.
Solo is listed in jail in Hope Amelia Stevens.
She is being held without bail for two counts of investigation of domestic-violence assault. Police say Solo, 32, got into an argument with the relatives during a family gathering. Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray said this morning that officers were called to the home because of an assault and a noise disturbance. “There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation,” Murray said. source
At some point during the party, Solo allegedly assaulted her sister and her nephew, he said. “There were visible injuries on them,” Murray said.
