Police: Soccer Star Hope Solo Arrested For Assault

Police say U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo has been arrested at a suburban Seattle home for assaulting her sister and nephew.

Officers say they responded just before 1 a.m. Saturday, after receiving a 911 call that a woman at the Kirkland residence was hitting people. Police say they found Solo intoxicated and upset, and they saw injuries on her 17-year-old nephew and her sister.

A news release from Kirkland police said officers arrested Solo after speaking with those present and determining that Solo was the aggressor.
