Details are still rolling in, but check out this series of tweets that started going around in the last few minutes from Chris Daniels, a reporter for KING-TV in Seattle, which you can see below.
Jerramy Stevens, the former tight end for the Seahawks and Buccaneers, is engaged to Hope Solo, apparently. A person who answered the phone at the municipal court in Kirkland, Wash., confirmed that Stevens had been arraigned at 1 p.m. (PST) for an allegation of assault of the fourth degree. We'll leave the rest to Daniels, who is in the courtroom:
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer just posted more info:
According to court documents, Stevens was arrested after police were called to an altercation in which Solo's younger brother, Marcus, had used a "stun gun."
Hope Solo was found with blood on her elbow but was not, according to documents, very cooperative with police Monday morning. Marcus Solo was found with blood on his forehead and knees after he allegedly fought with some unwanted party guests.
However, police found Stevens alseep on the floor of a bedroom, and Stevens said he had not heard the altercation between Marcus Solo and the unwanted male guests, according to the police report. The reporting officer asked why Stevens was hiding on the floor behind the bed, yet Stevens said he wasn't hiding but was sleeping.
Police noticed, however, that Stevens had blood on his cheek and his shirt. Stevens told the reporting officer that the blood on his cheek may have gotten there when Hope Solo kissed him. Stevens did not have an answer as to why there was dried blood on his shirt, according to documents.
Because police must make an arrest in domestic violence calls, and because Stevens had blood on him, officers arrested him on suspicion of fourth-degree assault. He was not charged.
Update (5:07 p.m.): MyNorthwest.com has a photo of Stevens, Solo, and some jack-o-lanterns.
