Hope Solo‚ an Olympic gold medalist‚ was arrested on Thursday night on suspicion of DWI and a misdemeanor child abuse charge. She also faces charges of resisting arrest and driving under the influence of alcohol. Although she is an ex-NFL player‚ the former goalkeeper was previously accused of domestic violence and made threats to kick a police officer's ass in 2014. She has two young children with her husband‚ former NFL player Jerramy Stevens. If convicted‚ she could face a prison sentence. A passerby reported seeing Solo unconscious behind the wheel for more than an hour. The responding officer did not administer a field sobriety test and refused to provide a blood sample. The incident remains under investigation‚ but it's unclear how far she has come. Her lawyer‚ Rich Nichols‚ said she is not denying that her client was guilty of the charges‚ but refused to answer specific questions about the charges. According to the report‚ the responding officer was able to smell alcohol on Solo and refused to submit to a field sobriety test. He also asked for a blood sample‚ but Solo declined to submit to both. Her attorney‚ Rich Nichols‚ did not immediately respond to questions regarding the charges against her client. However‚ he told reporters that his client was free on bail and was at home with her family. While the details of the case are still murky‚ it seems that Solo's story has more sensitivity than the initial charges imply. She has previously been arrested for disorderly behavior and allegedly assaulted her cousins and sister. Her lawyer Rich Nichols did not respond to specific questions regarding the charges against her. Whether Solo was actually involved in the incident is unknown‚ but it's clear that the arrest has a dramatic impact on the USWNT's future. The charges are based on the police report that the two-time Olympic gold medalist was unable to complete a field sobriety test. A blood sample was also requested. A lawyer for Hope Solo did not respond to specific questions‚ but confirmed the charges against the two-time USWNT goalkeeper. She was released immediately and returned to her family‚ where she is being treated. A report in the press today claims that a passerby noticed the ex-USWNT goalkeeper passed out behind the wheel of a car that was reportedly parked on a public road. The officer also said that he had witnessed Solo's arrest and that he had been sleeping for over an hour.

In addition to the DWI charge‚ the USWNT released her on bail. She refused to answer any questions about the charges on her behalf on the basis of the advice of her lawyer. Nevertheless‚ the USWNT's representative‚ Rich Nichols‚ said that the charges against Solo were lenient and she hoped to be released soon. The ex-USWNT goalkeeper was arrested on two counts of fourth-degree assault in 2014‚ but the prosecutor did not give testimony. The American star has a history of legal issues and domestic violence. In 2014‚ she was accused of berating a police officer and threatening her teenage nephew. In 2014‚ she was arrested on two counts of fourth-degree assault. The prosecution witnesses did not testify against her. She was released and is now at home with her family. He is a gold medalist and a former NFL player. The two have two children together. While the charges against her are not very serious‚ she is unable to speak on the matter on her own. She is being held in jail pending her appeal. Her lawyer‚ Rich Nichols‚ says he is not able to comment on the charges. A statement was released by her lawyer on social media. She was immediately released and is home with her family.
