HOPE SOLO'S FIANCE ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF ASSAULT
Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - Hope Solo's fiance was arrested on suspicion of assaulting the U.S. soccer star a day before their planned wedding on Tuesday (13Nov12).
The gold medal-winning Olympian was preparing to exchange vows in secret with American football star Jerramy Stevens in Seattle, Washington, but
the ceremony was called off after a bizarre bust-up on Monday (12Nov12).
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 8 November 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."
