Hope Solo Accused of Domestic Violence

(NEWSER) – Soccer star Hope Solo is involved in another domestic violence case, but this time as the one facing charges. Police say the 32-year-old hit her sister and her nephew last night during an "out-of-control" party at Solo's home in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, reports the Seattle Times. "There were visible injuries on them,” says a police official. The two-time Olympic gold medalist (and Dancing With the Stars vet) was being held without bail on two counts of investigation of domestic violence assault. In 2012, Solo's then-fiance, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, was accused of assaulting her, but charges were dropped because of insufficient evidence. They got married hours after that court appearance. Solo made happier headlines last week when she recorded her 71st career shutout in a match against France, notes AP. That ties the record for a US goalkeeper.
