Soccer Star Hope Solo Arrested for Alleged Domestic Violence
Soccer star Hope Solo has been arrested for alleged domestic battery again two of her own family members.
The incident reportedly took place in a Seattle suburb late Friday, according to People.com.
32-year old Solo, whose legal name is Hope Amelia Stevens, is still being held without bail on two counts of fourth-degree assault, according to officials in South King County.
Police say Hope allegedly hit her sister and nephew during a family gathering at her home in Kirkland, Washington, home. A police spokesperson tells The Seattle Times Solo was hosting a big party that got out of control. Authorities were sent to check out the situation after several neighbors called the cops about a noise disturbance and possible assault.
There were reportedly visible injuries on both victims.
This is hardly the first time Solo has made headlines. When she competed on Dancing with the Stars she accused her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, of slapping her during a rehearsal. In 2012 she was involved in a domestic-violence incident with her then-fiancé, Jerramy Stevens.
With a name like Solo, you’d think she’s keep her hands to herself.
