j and hope.jpgA late breaking story on ABC news, former soccer goalie and sex symbol Hope Solo was a victim of domestic violence from her boyfriend/fiance, former NFL bad boy Jerramy Stevens.

According to public sources, the former Seattle Seahawk's tight end was arrested the day before the couples wedding on suspicion of assault. A Kirkland county Judge later released Mr. Stevens, saying their was not enough evidence to hold him. For her part, Hope Solo arrived in court but did not say a word, leaving before talking to the Judge or the press. Per the police, charges may be brought at a later time as more evidence develops.

The athletic couple, who had been dating for two months, had allegedly gotten into an arguement about whether to live in Florida or Washington. hope solo.jpg

Police in the Seattle suburb arrived at the couple's house around 3:45 a.m. on a call of a domestic disturbance.

Per the police report, there were several intoxicated people at the party and no one would cooperate with the police. The ex-NFL player was determined to be the guilty party based on circumstantial evidence and Hope Solo appeared to have a cut on her elbow, leading to the domestic assault charges. Jerramy Stevens also admitted to the police he was fighting with Ms. Solo and blood was found on his shirt. Hope Solo's brother told police that there was a disturbance at the party started by several unknown men who left before the police arrived.

Besides Hope, another woman was taken to the hospital with a hip injury and a man had several cuts and bruises on his body.

This arrest is just the latest set back for Jerramy Stevens. The former first-round draft pick had one or two good seasons but is widly considered a bust, both on and off the field. He first received negative attention when he was charged with reckless driving for crashing into a nursing home!

He then began a whirlwind of arrests including a DUI charge in Arizona and another reckless driving.

His most recent arrest took place in 2010 while with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was arrested for possession of marijuana the night before a game and was immediately kicked off the team.953593-domestic-violence-callout.jpg
