Soccer star Hope Solo was arrested overnight for allegedly striking her sister and her nephew at a Kirkland home
She is being held without bail for two counts of investigation of fourth-degree domestic-violence assault. Police say Solo, 32, got into an argument with the relatives during a family gathering.
Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray said this morning that officers were called to the home because of an assault and a noise disturbance.
There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation, Murray said.
At some point during the party, Solo allegedly assaulted her sister and her nephew, he said. There were visible injuries on them, Murray said.
Solo is the goalkeeper for the Seattle Reign FC.
She has also played on two gold-medal winning Olympic womens teams and appeared on TVs Dancing with the Stars. In November, 2012, her then-boyfriend Stevens was arrested for allegedly assaulting Solo; a stun gun was reportedly used to break up the altercation. Hours later, Stevens and Solo were married.
Solo said shes living in the spotlight.
Im in the spotlight, but not the truth, Solo said. Thats hard to accept, but that is unfortunately kind of how the world is and how the media is.
Whether its with Hollywood, whether its with sports figures, whether its the president, thats kind of how it works. Im realistic and I understand that. Thats why its important for me to know who I am, to know Im living my life the way I want to live, and that I am happy. At the end of the day, I cant really let myself get too angry about outside opinions that are or arent true.

Pleased to say WTF is Hope Sollo
Did she beat up Han?
A drunk female soccer goalie with a lot of class, all low.
and there go her gun rights.
it is ridiculous that this causes that.
Of course Hope had to do it, in soccer you can’t use your Hans.
>>Did she beat up Han?<<
Nah — Han shot first!
Are her brothers Drum and Bass okay?
Aren’t all these soccer players supposed to be at this “World Cup” thing down in Brazil?
Women can be guilty of domestic violence?
Sorry about the size of pic
Didn’t look that big on my phone.
NOT guilty. And no need to apologize for the size. I need a smoke after scrolling my way down.
She must have spent too much time around the punch bowl —
We almost saw a wookie.
She had a bizarre childhood. A runaway father who sometimes appeared. She and her brother were kidnapped by the father at one point. Her parents divorced when she was six, but she reconnected with her father when she was playing college soccer.
She's plenty famous - a semifinalist on Dancing with the Stars in 2011, and ads for Bank of America, Seiko, Simple Skincare, Nike, BlackBerry, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Gatorade, and Western Union. She was on every talk show in the world after the London Olympics.
She's demonstrated that she's self-destructive.
