US Soccer star Hope Solo’s husband was arrested and jailed on Wednesday for a suspected parole violation relating to a recent domestic violence arrest.
Former football player Jerramy Stevens was arrested in Tampa on Wednesday and is currently being held without bond at the Hillsborough County Jail.
Stevens first got into trouble with the law on the eve of his secret wedding to Solo in Seattle, where he was arrested on suspicion of fourth-degree assault after officers saw signs of a fight and blood on his shirt when investigating a disturbance at a private party the evening before the wedding.
That incident was discovered to be a breach of his probation from a 2010 arrest for marijuana, and Stevens was taken to jail.
In Ireland preparing for a soccer game, Solo took to her Twitter page to address the situation: “I feel bad for all the ignorance in the world. People are so quick to judge.
“The media spins stories in such dramatic fashion. I will continue to show love, and never make judgments. I am blessed w True Love & the beautiful game of soccer. I wish everybody the same happiness.”
