Hope Solo arrested for investigation of domestic violence ( Seattle Reign FC )
Seattle Times ^ | June 21, 2014 | Jennifer Sullivan

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 women’s teams and appeared on TV’s “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 she’s living in the spotlight.

“I’m in the spotlight, but not the truth,” Solo said. “That’s hard to accept, but that is unfortunately kind of how the world is and how the media is.

“Whether it’s with Hollywood, whether it’s with sports figures, whether it’s the president, that’s kind of how it works. I’m realistic and I understand that. That’s why it’s important for me to know who I am, to know I’m living my life the way I want to live, and that I am happy. At the end of the day, I can’t really let myself get too angry about outside opinions that are or aren’t true.”

NOT guilty. And no need to apologize for the size. I need a smoke after scrolling my way down.

Solo has always had a touch of the crazy in her, but we can all remember a period of 6-8 years when she was considered one of the 'definitely not guilty' members of the US women's soccer team.

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.

She admits in the press that she was “conceived in prison” when her mother went to visit her father.
