[JURISPRUDENCE] On the eve of her marriage to Jerramy Stevens, U.S. women's star Hope
Solo was involved in an incident with the former NFL tight end that resulted in his arrest on suspicion of fourth-degree domestic violence assault. Stevens was released without being charged,
and there was no word whether Tuesday's marriage went forward.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that police were called Monday morning to a residence in Kirkland, Wash., at which Solo's brother, Marcus, was present.
According to police, Marcus Solo, who placed the call, had blood on his forehead and knees and a freshly bruised eye after an incident he claimed involved "uninvited guests" at a party. Police didn't find any unwanted guests but did find another, unidentified woman lying on the kitchen floor with a hip injury.
Hope Solo, who was reported to be intoxicated, had blood and a fresh laceration on her elbow.
Stevens, who has an extensive arrest record, was found in his bedroom on the floor behind the bed, where he said he was sleeping. He admitted to arguing with Solo about where they should live but claimed he was sleeping when the supposed altercation took place.
Hope Solo refused to give a written statement. Her unwillingness to cooperate was given as one reason why charges may not be filed.
