Jerramy Stevens, the husband of U.S. national team goalkeeper Hope Solo, was driving a team vehicle when he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence earlier this week, a person familiar with the details of the arrest said Thursday.
Hope Solo is not good, or bad, or any other simple label. She is complicated -- and it's important that we discuss her that way, even if she doesn't fit neatly into one of the classifications typically assigned to female athletes.
A judge's decision to throw out the domestic assault case against Hope Solo did more than keep Solo from a trial. It also went a long way toward keeping the World Cup dreams of the U.S. women's national team alive.
In a motion filed on Wednesday afternoon, Hope Solo's attorney has asked that her domestic violence charges be dismissed on the grounds that neither alleged victim is complying with a court order to be deposed, espnW has learned.
She's been fighting her whole life, so maybe it shouldn't come as a surprise that Hope Solo finds herself in the midst of a second domestic violence incident. The details of her arrest -- and her life, really -- aren't quite that simple, though.
Talk about turf and whether Hope Solo should be on the pitch all you want. But being part of the World Cup still involves the small matter of qualifying for it. The U.S. women open the CONCACAF Women's Championship on Wednesday.
