KIRKLAND, Wash. — Police say US women’s soccer star Hope Solo has been arrested at a suburban Seattle home for assaulting her sister and nephew.

A news release from Kirkland police said officers arrested Solo after speaking with those present and determining that Solo was the aggressor.

She was arrested for investigation of two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault and booked into South King County misdemeanor jail as Hope Amelia Stevens. She is being held without bail and is expected to appear Monday at Kirkland Municipal Court.

Solo is a goalkeeper for the US women’s national team and the Seattle Reign FC, which released the following statement: “We are aware of the situation regarding Hope Solo and are currently gathering information. We have no further comments at this time.”

She is married to former Seattle Seahawk Jerramy Stevens, who was arrested for allegedly assaulting Solo in November 2012. He was released due to insufficient evidence and was not charged.
