Jerramy Stevens’ wife arrested for assault

Solo AP

They say opposites attract.  That concept may not apply to former Seahawks and Buccaneers tight end Jerramy Stevens and his wife, U.S. women’s soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo.

Stevens, a first-round pick in 2002, has a long and distinguished rap sheet, dating back to his days at the University of Washington.  In November 2012, he was arrested for assaulting Solo.  The next day, they were married.  (If Stevens had still been playing at the time, there may or may not have been a press conference in which she apologized for being assaulted.)

On Friday night, Solo was arrested on two counts of investigation of domestic assault.  She allegedly assaulted her sister and nephew, with police finding visible injuries on both victims.

“There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation,” Kirkland, Washington police officer Mike Murray said.

When it comes to things being out of control, it’s no surprise that Stevens’ name is attached to the incident.  Given his history, the only real surprise is that he wasn’t implicated in some way.  (Check Google, Wikipedia, or the PFT archives if you don’t believe us, or if you’ve forgotten.)

Stevens is nevertheless perhaps better known for his inability to catch the ball in key moments, specifically in the Super Bowl to cap the 2005 season.  That’s the same year Solo become the goalkeeper of the U.S. women’s soccer team.  It’s unclear whether this incident will impact her status.

For now, the U.S. women’s team has no comment, Solo’s lawyer claims she’s not guilty, and the beat will go on.  Figuratively and from time to time perhaps literally.

    Hope could definitely beat me up and I feel pretty good about my skills.

    They decided against charging Stevens, they figured the charges would have been “Dropped” anyway.

    The sports version of Bobby and Whitney.

    When do they get a reality show?

    Somehow I can imagine and hear the theme song from the movie ‘ Deliverance’ playing at the house party…. S U E Y !!!!

    What is Solo doing with someone like, um, Stevens?

  9. claimersays says: Jun 22, 2014 1:06 PM

    If I was the wife of Jerramy nutpunch Stevens, I would Hope to be Solo as well.

    The cowboys or ratbirds are on the phone to sign her right now.

  11. surfinbird1 says: Jun 22, 2014 1:08 PM

    Dope Solo needs some serious anger management.

  12. El Pollo Loco says: Jun 22, 2014 1:08 PM

    It’s ok she’s hot she can do what she likes

  13. 2difshoe says: Jun 22, 2014 1:10 PM

    Wait, she beats up her family and they throw Stevens under the bus ! WOW, now there’s a reach !

  14. vwbrown19 says: Jun 22, 2014 1:11 PM

    He assaulted her then she married him the next day She has definitely received too many blows to the head with the soccer ball.

    This is Bill Belichick’s fault, right trolls?

  16. silverhornet says: Jun 22, 2014 1:16 PM

    She looks like a real keeper…

    I wonder what her goal was…

    Who would think so low as to beat up your nephew…

    One can only hope, she gets what she deserves…

    I’m sure she’ll get a good attorney to avoid any sort of penalty.

    ok I’m done…

  17. granadafan says: Jun 22, 2014 1:18 PM

    Wait, I thought she was a goalkeeper, not a striker….

  18. thestrategyexpert says: Jun 22, 2014 1:19 PM

    Well her lawyer has made a statement that she denies assaulting both people so let’s see what else there is to this story. In fact he says not only did she not commit a crime, but she was assaulted and they actually “look forward to” presenting the facts. At least the lawyer didn’t use the word “fun”.

  19. mungman69 says: Jun 22, 2014 1:28 PM

    Belichick has never gone “Solo”.

  20. hawkstradamus says: Jun 22, 2014 1:40 PM

    It just makes her hotter.

    Opposites ? Really? Two people with substance abuse issues ghost married, since then a string of issues. No big surprise there.

    Not that this helps her already looney reputation, but in the state of Washington, if the cops are called for a donestic issue, someone is getting arrested; it’s the law here. They grab the who they think may be the most guilty and sort the rest out later.

  27. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 22, 2014 2:55 PM

    Hope came by it honestly. Her father lived in a tent in the woods, and she grew up having injury inducing fights with her older brother. You have to read her biography. She is legend.

  28. annes22 says: Jun 22, 2014 2:55 PM

    Maybe Abby Wambach can help her out. She’s a crazy person, this is not the first time for her.

  29. kneelbeforesod says: Jun 22, 2014 3:31 PM

    Nice change of pace?

  30. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 22, 2014 3:37 PM

    If it came down to a serious fight between Solo and Stevens, I’d bet on Hope every time. I’ve seen her kick balls 75 yards from a stand still. They were big balls too.

  31. theravishingrachelnichols says: Jun 22, 2014 4:37 PM

    Solo always shoots, er, strikes first.

  32. calvinthegreat81 says: Jun 22, 2014 4:37 PM

    I’d like to watch Hope while she’s rollin Solo.

  33. whatjusthapped says: Jun 22, 2014 4:42 PM

    Geez, if she serves you a burnt hot dog for lunch and asks how you like the food, how do you answer?

    Love to see how Thanksgiving Dinner goes once you throw in a whole day of drinking.

  34. arminscopyofswank says: Jun 22, 2014 4:56 PM

    Jerramy Stevens is a bad man.

    Call me sexist, but I have hope for her, or in the very least they don’t have kids.

  35. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 22, 2014 5:24 PM

    USNWT easily has the most interesting sports personalities in the nation. Sydney Leroux’s dog “Boss” has more Twitter followers than most NFL players.

  36. bobnelsonjr says: Jun 22, 2014 5:39 PM

    She chose to abandon her family and marry into the lifestyle.

    She disowned her family long ago.

  37. JSpicoli says: Jun 22, 2014 5:42 PM

    Hope is a case of good frames, bad lenses.

  38. gmsalpha says: Jun 22, 2014 6:15 PM

    How old is the newphew? I mean…assaulting a kid who’s maybe, what…5?

    That’s pretty sad.

    And though it may be funny to laugh at it and make comments that “it’s okay because she’s hot”, it’s definitely not okay. I can only imagine the tune if this were one of the less attractive women in sports. My guess is that the comments would have a completely different tone had this been, say, Annika Sorenstam or Venus Williams.

    Bobby and Whitney

  40. nawlinsmitty says: Jun 22, 2014 7:12 PM

    Solo has serious psychological issues in addition to being an alcoholic.

  41. blackqbwhiterb says: Jun 22, 2014 8:11 PM

    That was some Super Bowl….. Only then did I learn from the media just how bad a guy that Stevens is (was)….. He’s trouble and she’s apparently up for all kinds a good hard fun i suppose.

    Red Solo cup

    Marketing ploy I tell ya

  43. ningenito78 says: Jun 22, 2014 11:37 PM

    She’s always had some crazy in her. The least of which was marrying that knuckle dragging piece of garbage. Hope Solo- an idol for little girls everywhere. Or something like that.

  44. rukkus1 says: Jun 23, 2014 5:12 AM

    Stevens is a tough guy until someone like Joey Porter knees him in the nuts. I never liked him when he was on the Hawks.

  45. axespray says: Jun 23, 2014 9:44 AM

    Hope has some bad taste.

    Seriously… Jerramy Stevens?

    Yuck.

    Hope Solo and Ray Rice get into an elevator…
