USWNT and Seattle Reign FC goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested early Saturday morning following an altercation with her sister and 17-year-old nephew at a family party in the home she shares with husband and serial shithead Jerramy Stevens. She is being held without bail on two counts of domestic violence assault.


Kirkland police responded to calls related to a noise disturbance and happened upon what Lt. Mike Murray described as a "big party" and an "out-of-control scene." Solo was allegedly drunk and left visible injuries on both her sister and nephew. Here is the police description of the events, via 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.

If this sounds weirdly familiar, but for Stevens's lack of involvement (which is weird), that's because Solo found herself in Kirkland Municipal Court following a similar party/fight situation involving a stun gun, her brother Marcus, and very soon-to-be husband, Jerramy, that left Solo a little bloodied hours before her wedding.

Solo will be back in Kirkland Court Monday June 23rd for a mandatory appearance.
