Hope Solo's Fiancé Arrested On Suspicion Of Assault
Hope Solo's fiancé was arrested on suspicion of assaulting the soccer star a day before their planned wedding on Tuesday.
The gold medal-winning Olympian was preparing to exchange vows in secret with football player Jerramy Stevens in Seattle, Washington, but the ceremony was called off after a bizarre bust-up on Monday.
Stevens was arrested on suspicion of fourth-degree assault after cops saw signs of a fight and blood on his shirt when they investigated a disturbance at a private party in Kirkland, Washington.
In an affidavit, the arresting officer noted that Stevens admitted arguing with Solo, who had a cut on her elbow.
According to the Associated Press, Solo appeared in court on Tuesday - the day she was supposed to walk down the aisle - and charges were dropped against Stevens.
The athletes, who have been dating for two months, applied for a marriage license on November 8th and had hoped to keep their wedding this week under wraps.
Kirkland Police Lt. Mike Murray tells Washington news station KING-TV, "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."
