Last time we wrote about soccer star Hope Solo, it was as a victim of domestic violence. Now it is her turn to be a criminal suspect. From CBS news online,
Olympic soccer star Hope Solo was arrested for assault and domestic violence this week against her 17-year-old nephew and and her sister according to police.
The charges resulted from a 911 caller who said a woman was “hitting people,” Washington police said. The caller also said Solo wouldn’t stop or leave the house where the alleged assault took place.
When police arrived, they found Solo intoxicated and emotional. Further investigation found injuries on the boy and her sister. Solo was determined to be at fault.
She was booked into jail early Saturday morning where she remained over the weekend until first appearance court on Monday.
