China v United States

Goal keeper Hope Solo #1 of the United States warms up prior to faicng China at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on April 6, 2014 in Commerce City, Colorado. The United States defeated China 2-0.

KIRKLAND — Hope Solo is slated to appear in the Kirkland Municipal Court at 1 p.m. Monday following an alleged domestic violence dispute.

Solo was arrested on domestic violence charges early Saturday after allegedly assaulting both her sister and nephew at a home in Seattle, Washington, police said.

Solo, 32, goalie for the Seattle Reign FC and a former Olympian, was being held without bail in the south King County jail on domestic-violence assault charges, according to a statement from the Kirkland Police Department. Her name is listed as Hope Amelia Stevens.

Police said Solo allegedly assaulted her sister and a 17-year-old nephew early Saturday. Officers responded to a 911 call for a disturbance in which a male reported that a woman would not stop “hitting people” or leave the house, the statement said.

At the home, officers heard a disturbance. Inside, Solo appeared “intoxicated and upset,” police said.

Police said Solo’s nephew and sister had visible injuries. After interviewing witnesses, police determined that Solo was the “primary aggressor and had instigated the assault,” the statement said.

Solo, who is married to former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, played on two gold-medal-winning Olympic women’s teams and appeared on TV’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
