The goalkeeper for the U.S. women's soccer team is making news but not the good kind. Hope Solo was arrested early Saturday morning on charges of domestic violence. According to the Chicago Tribune on Saturday, Hope Solo allegedly assaulted her sister and nephew during a party she threw in her home.

The arrest was made at Solo's home right outside of Seattle in Kirkland, Wash. Her sister is said to be in her forties while her nephew is just in his teens. Both parties were said to have noticeable marks on them after the altercation.

The fight took place around 1 a.m. and police were called to the scene. Solo, 32, had thrown quite a large party at her home and was described as looking intoxicated when police showed up. It is unclear exactly what started the altercation that led to her arrest. According to Kirkland police, the scene was out of control when they arrived and Hope was not cooperative.

Hope was checked in to the South Correctional Entity Regional Jail under the name Hope Amelia Stevens. She has been charged with fourth degree assault and bail has not yet been set. Her first hearing is set for Monday.

Hope's husband Jerramy Stevens is a former Seattle Seahawks football player and the two are local celebrities around the Seattle area. Hope is the star goalkeeper for the U.S. women's soccer team. With Hope Solo on board, the team has won two gold medals.

This isn't the first time police have been involved with Hope Solo in a domestic violence situation. Just after marrying husband Jerramy Stevens in November 2012, police were called. They believed Stevens had become physical with his new wife. Stevens was quickly released and no charges were filed due to insufficient evidence.
