US Soccer star, Hope Solo, is currently being held in jail and is being investigated for two accounts of domestic-violence assault during a recent family gathering. The two victims are Solo’s sister and her nephew.
According to the Seattle Times:
Solo is listed in the registry at the SCORE misdemeanor jail in South King County as 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.
At some point during the party, Solo allegedly assaulted her sister and her nephew, he said. “There were visible injuries on them,” Murray said.
Solo and her husband Jerramy Stevens have had a past when it comes to a brush with the law.
In November, 2012, her then-boyfriend Stevens was arrested for allegedly assaulting Solo; a stun gun was reportedly used to break up the altercation. Hours later, Stevens and Solo were married
