Hope Solo reportedly married fiancé and former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jerramy Stevens Tuesday night, the same day the former University of Washington standout was arraigned on domestic violence charges.
The 31-year-old goalkeeper for the U.S. women’s national soccer team tied the knot with Stevens despite the former NFL player allegedly attacking Soloon Monday, according to Dave Mahler of 950AM and 102.9FM in Seattle.
“Confirmed: Jerramy Stevens and Hope Solo were married tonight. Events of yesterday morning didn't change plans. Sounds like more facts comin,” the radio host tweeted.
Stevens was arraigned Tuesday on assault charges in a Kirkland, Wash., courtroom, but the judge released the former Seahawks wide receiver because of lack of evidence, according to media reports.
Solo, Stevens and her brother, Marcus Solo, were attending a party early Monday morning that got violent, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported.
Marcus Solo called police and as officers were speaking to him, Hope Solo came out of the house with a bloody laceration on her elbow, according to the paper.
When police entered the house, they found Stevens looking like he was asleep. Officers thought he was trying to hide from them and discovered the troubled ex-NFL wide receiver had blood on his cheek. Stevens said the blood might have gotten there when Solo kissed him, the Post-Intelligencer reported.
Solo was described as being “uncooperative and argumentative” with police and tried to prevent her brother from talking to cops, according to the paper.
Stevens’ arrest Monday wasn’t the first time the former University of Washington receiver has had a legal issue.
In 2000, a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her, although the charges were eventually dropped. Stevens allegedly fought two bouncers last year at a Florida bar and was charged with felony battery in that incident.
Besides reportedly getting married and being in a courtroom to answer assault charges, Stevens was also celebrating his 33rd birthday Tuesday, according to Sports Illustrated.
