Kirkland, WA, United States (4E Sports) – U.S. women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested for two counts of domestic violence assault and is being held without bail at the SCORE misdemeanor jail in South King County.

According to police, Solo allegedly got into an argument with relatives at a family party at the home she shares with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, in Kirkland, Washington.

During the altercation, Solo physically struck her sister and 17-year-old nephew.

“There were visible injuries on them,” Kirkland police lieutenant Mike Murray said, adding 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.

Solo is expected to appear Monday at Kirkland Municipal Court.

In a statement, US soccer said it was aware of Solo’s situation. “At this point, we don’t have any further comments,” it said.

In 2012, Solo was involved in a domestic violence incident when her then-boyfriend Stevens was arrested for allegedly assaulting her. Stevens was never charged and they were married the next day.
