Held without bail at the SCORE misdemeanor jail in South King County on two counts of investigation of domestic violence assault, Hope Solo will have a mandatory court appearance Monday June 23rd at the Kirkland Municipal Court, with the time yet to be determined.
This not Solo’s first run-in with police for domestic violence.
In November 2012, Stevens, then her boyfriend, was arrested for allegedly assaulting Solo.
A stun gun was said to have been used to diffuse the situation.
Interestingly Stevens and Solo were married the following day.
In her 2012 biography, Solo: A Memoir Of Hope, she wrote of her tumultuous family relationships.
‘My family doesn’t do happy endings,’ Solo said in the book.
‘We do sad endings or frustrating endings or no endings at all.
‘We are hardwired to expect the next interruption or disappearance or broken promise.’
Solo’s father was also arrested for kidnapping her and her brother when she was seven.
Her parents had divorced the year prior.
She has previously spoken about how her dad picked her and her brother from their home in Richland, Washington – where they lived with her mother, Judy – to go to a baseball game in a nearby town.
However Jeffrey Solo continued to drive to Seattle, where the three stayed in a hotel for several days.
Hope and her brother believed it was a vacation, until their father was arrested at a bank.
In her professional life, Solo has played on two gold-medal winning Olympic women’s teams and appeared Dancing With The Stars.
According to The New York Post, the Seattle Reign is scheduled to play on Sunday against the Western New York Flash in Rochester.
‘We are aware of the situation,‘ US Soccer said in a statement to the paper.
‘At this point, we don’t have any further comments.’
At present no release date for Solo has been set.
