Former NFL player Jerramy Stevens and soccer star Hope Solo reportedly got married on Tuesday night, hours after a judge released Stevens without charging him following Stevens’ arrest for a domestic violence incident involving Solo.
Dave Mahler of KJR Radio in Seattle reported that Stevens and Solo got married on Tuesday night, and that Stevens’ Monday arrest did not change the couple’s plans. A police report in the incident said Stevens and Solo had an altercation that started with a dispute over where they would live after they got married, but the day after Stevens was arrested, a judge ruled that there was no evidence to charge Stevens with a crime. (Solo, pictured exiting the courtroom, appeared in court during the brief hearing at which Stevens was released but did not speak.)
Stevens has a long criminal history stretching back to his days as a high school football star, with arrests for sexual assault, felony battery, failing a drug test while on probation and drunk driving among the charges. His NFL career ended when the Buccaneers cut him in 2010 following his arrest for possession of cannabis with intent to sell.
A 2002 first-round draft pick of the Seahawks, Stevens played five years in Seattle and four in Tampa. Solo has been a goalie for the U.S. women’s national soccer team since 2000 and has won two Olympic gold medals.
