[JURISPRUDENCE] U.S. women's national team star Hope Solo was arrested on two charges of domestic violence assault in the fourth degree early on Saturday morning at her home on Kirkland, Wash., after allegedly striking her sister and teenage nephew. She was booked into a local detention facility and will have a court appearance on Monday.

On Sunday, Solo tied the U.S. record with her 70th shutout in the USA's 1-0 win over France. But she was not with the USA for the 2-2 tie with the Bleues in Connecticut for what was described as a "family commitment." She did not play for the unbeaten Seattle Reign in its 2-0 win over Boston on Thursday.

The police statement as provided to the Seattle Times:

On June 21st 2014 and just before 1:00 am, Kirkland Police Department Patrol Units responded to a 911 call of a disturbance in the 10600 block of 124th AVE NE. The male caller stated that a female at the residence was “hitting people” and they could not get her to stop or to leave the house. Officer arrived and immediately heard the sounds of the disturbance inside the residence.

They entered and contacted several persons; one being Hope A Stevens (Solo) who appeared intoxicated and upset. As officers made contact, they observed visible injuries on Solo’s 17-year-old nephew and on Solo’s sister. After receiving statements of the persons involved, Officers determined that Solo was the primary aggressor and had instigated the assault.

Solo was arrested on 2 counts of Domestic Violence Assault 4th Degree and booked into the south King County detention facility (SCORE). Solo will have a mandatory court appearance Monday June 23rd at the Kirkland Municipal Court, with the time yet to be determined.

    Good Lord. Can you say "Drama Queen"? Love the athlete, hate the entitlement mentality.
