Hope Solo arrested on domestic violence charge

(USA Today) -- Olympic gold medalist and soccer star Hope Solo is being held without bail for investigation on two counts of domestic-violence assault at the South Correctional Entity Regional Jail in Des Moines, Wash.

Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray told The Seattle Times that Solo was arrested overnight, accused of striking her sister and nephew at her home in Kirkland, Wash., and said both suffered "visible injuries."

Murray told The Seattle Times that officers were called to the home, which Solo shares with husband and former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, because of an assault and noise disturbance.

"There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation," Murray said.

The 32-year-old Solo is listed as "Hope Amelia Stevens" on the registry list at the county jail. No release date was noted.

Solo is the goalkeeper for the Seattle Reign FC.
