U.S. Women’s Soccer Goalkeeper Hope Solo Assaulted By Fiancee
Hope Solo, U.S. Woman's goalkeeper and two time Olympic Champion was assaulted by her fiancee, ex-Seahawk, Jerramy Stevens one day before their wedding.
Stevens was arrested for fourth-degree domestic assault, but has not yet been charged. The judge determined that there was not enough evidence to hold Stevens, however, charges could be brought later if more evidence is discovered.
No woman under any circumstances deserves to be hit for any reason. Reportedly the couple was arguing over whether to live in Washington or Florida after they were married.
Even an accomplised, beautiful athlete at the top of her game( see the Sports Illustrated Body Issue)can be susceptible to falling for a bad boy...
And bad boy he is.
Stevens has had several run-ins with the law for reckless driving, driving under the influence, sexual assault, and possession of marijuana. In fact, Stevens has made more headlines for his off the field antics than on the field accomplishments.
After an outstanding collegiate career at Washington, Stevens was drafted in the first round by the Seattle Seahawks. He never lived up to expectations and was a first round bust.
Everyone publicly watched as Evelyn Lozado and Chad Johnson's relationship train-wrecked due to violence. The signs are all there for Hope to see before she goes any further in the relationship - how about instead of appearing in front of a minister on her wedding day, she was appearing in front of a judge for her fiancee's bail hearing.
New York Daily News reported that when police arrived on the scene, Hope instructed her brother Marcus "Don't tell them anything."
Hope, I hope that you don't find yourself settling for just anything and come to the realization that it might be better to stay solo.
