Is Hope Solo the next Tonya Harding?

I'm sure years from now this will be a funny story they tell their grandchildren.

Or not.

Hope Solo involved in assault case before wedding

10:29PM EST November 13. 2012 - Disturbing details emerged when U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo appeared in court Tuesday in Kirkland, Wash., with her fiancee, Jerramy Stevens, a former NFL tight end, who was accused of striking Solo.

<snip>

Based on Stevens' account that he had been arguing with Solo, the sign of an altercation in the bedroom, her injury and the blood on his shirt, police arrested Stevens on charges of fourth-degree domestic assault.

Stevens told the officer he and Solo had been fighting about whether they would live in Florida or Washington after their planned marriage on Tuesday, according to police. Court records show the two applied for a marriage license last Thursday, komonews.com reported.

Stevens, 33, has a lengthy history of run-ins with the law, dating to high school. He played football at the University of Washington (where Solo also competed) and was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. In 2000, Stevens was arrested for the sexual assault of a 19-year-old University of Washington freshman. However, prosecutors declined to file rape charges because of insufficient evidence.

1. Is Hope Solo related to Han Solo?

A character in the new Star Wars film?

6. so he has a history of assault and we're asking if she

is the next Tonya Harding? Sounds like she knows how to defend herself when being domestically assaulted. Good for her.

7. a good thing given her future husband's background

Those of us in the PNW are familiar with former Husky/Seahawk Jerramy Steven's frequent run-ins with the law over the last fifteen years.

10. there were multiple injuries

When officers arrived Marcus had blood on his forehead and a bruise under his eye. His sister, Hope, had blood on her elbow from a cut but would not explain how she got hurt, an officer wrote in the police report.

An officer went into the house and found blood on the floor, another injured woman, and blood along a staircase handrail.

The officer reached an upstairs bedroom and found Stevens apparently hiding on the floor between a wall and bed, according to the report.

Stevens insisted he was sleeping, not hiding, and said he did not hear the fight.

According to the report, Stevens had dried blood on his shirt and cheek and there were signs of a fight in the bedroom. Stevens said the blood on his face was from a kiss from Hope, but he would not explain the blood on his shirt, police said.

12. It seems to me you are slandering the woman because she fell in love with a piece of fecal matter

Do you object to the idea that she might have fought back?
