ESPN On the morning before they were supposed to be married, U.S. women’s soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo and former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens were involved in an altercation that left Stevens in jail and their wedding plans up in the air, police said. Stevens was arrested early Monday for fourth-degree domestic violence assault but was not charged. He was eventually released when a Kirkland Municipal Court judge ruled there was no evidence connecting him to an assault. Kirkland police said the case was still under investigation, and charges could be brought later if prosecutors and police find other evidence, a police spokesman told the Associated Press. Stevens, 33, and Solo, 31, applied for a marriage license Thursday, according to King County records. The couple, who have been in a relationship for two months, were reportedly set to be married on Tuesday. There is no word on whether the wedding actually took place. In the police report, Stevens said he and Solo had been arguing over whether they would live in Washington or Florida after the marriage. Solo appeared in the courtroom on Tuesday, but left without saying anything to reporters, according to KING-TV. A call to a number listed for Stevens in court documents went unanswered. A message left at a listed number for Solo was not immediately returned, the AP reported. Police in the Kirkland responded to a disturbance at a home around 3:45 a.m. Monday involving a physical altercation between eight people during a party, said Kirkland Police Lt. Mike Murray. He said officers contacted several people in the home who appeared intoxicated and didn’t cooperate with police, but determined based on information and observations that there was probable cause to arrest Stevens for investigation of fourth-degree assault. Murray didn’t identify the alleged victim, but court records show it was Solo, who received a cut to her elbow.Court documents show that Solo’s 34-year-old brother, Marcus, called 911, and that he and Solo told officers there was a party and blamed the disturbance on two to three unknown men who were at the party. Marcus Solo told police he used a stun gun on one of the men, who left the party before police arrived, according to court records. According to court documents, a police officer found Stevens, “who appeared to be hiding,” lying between the bed and the wall in an upstairs bedroom. Stevens told officers he was sleeping on the floor and didn’t hear the fight. The officer saw signs of a fight, and dried blood on Stevens’ shirt. The officer noted in his affidavit for probable cause for arrest that he arrested Stevens based on his admission that he argued with Hope Solo, the injury to her elbow, signs of a fight in the bedroom where Stevens was found and blood on Stevens’ shirt. One 32-year-old woman was taken to the hospital for treatment of a hip injury, and another man suffered multiple bumps, scrapes and contusions, Murray said. “If officers find that an assault may have taken place, then we have to make an arrest on who we determine is the primary aggressor,” Murray said.
It has become clear that the man running Sportsmasher.com is a psychic! Why do my powers not work for my weekly NFL gambling picks?
Just yesterday, when Sportsmasher.com was informed of this relationship between Solo and Stevens (first we heard they were dating, then we heard they were engaged after a two month relationship) I advised Solo to get out of this relationship immediately before Stevens smacks her around. Here is a link to my article yesterday, look at Stevens’ disturbing rap sheet:
Rape. Assault with a deadly weapon. Multiple DUIs and drug arrests.
Now this. The morning before their shotgun wedding, Stevens is arrested for fourth degree assault, after he beats up his bride to be.
Did Sportsmasher call it, or did Sportsmasher call it?
It seems that Solo is not pressing charges on Stevens, an indication that the wedding may still be on, so let me say this one more time:
Hope Solo, get out of this relationship with this criminal while you still can, or we’ll all be watching a special about you on the ID Network called “Empty Net: The Hope Solo Story.”
