Hope Solo, USWNT legend, arrested for DWI and child abuse

A new scandal has erupted for the former US Women's National Team (USWNT) goalkeeper, Hope Solo, who was arrested Thursday for driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, as well as misdemeanor child abuse.

The incident occurred in a Walmart parking lot on Parkway Village Circle in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where Solo, who was accompanied by her two children in her car, was arrested and taken to the Forsyth County jail for processing.

As part of the officers' report, it was reported that the 40-year-old former janitor was arrested for impaired driving (DWI), resisting arrest, and misdemeanor child abuse, for which she could go to prison if convicted, according to TMZ Sports.

Solo has already been released after arrest

However, Solo has now been released and is at home with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, and her two twin sons (who were apparently the minors accompanying Hope during her arrest), as reported by Rich Nichols, the former football player's attorney, in a statement.

"On the advice of counsel, Hope can't speak about this situation, but she wants everyone to know that her kids are her life, that she was released immediately and is now at home with her family, that the story is more sympathetic than the initial charges suggest, and that she looks forward to her opportunity to defend these charges," Nichols said.

Solo's history of trouble with the law

Solo has a history of trouble with the law, having been accused of berating a police officer in 2014, and threatening to "kick his ass," as well as having been arrested for domestic violence and for being part of a physical confrontation with her teenage nephew.
