Olympian Hope Solo defends husband Jerramy Stevens following arrest

Olympic gold medalist Hope Solo didn’t hold back from confronting her critics during the 2012 Games in London, and the U.S. women’s soccer goalkeeper is not holding back today either in the wake of her husband’s arrest on a probation violation.

Police in Florida today arrested Jerramy Stevens, a former NFL tight end, for investigation of a possible violation of his terms of probation related to a 2010 drug possession charge. For her part, Solo told followers “the truth will prevail.”


The “Seattle fallout” refers to a domestic violence incident which was investigated on Nov. 13, the day of Solo’s and Stevens’ wedding.



Solo also thanked her “true fans” for their support.

    Who is Hope Solo and who is Jerramy Stevens?

      Hope Solo is the goal for the US Women’s National Team. Jerramy Stevens is a Seattle Seahawk. Both seems to think emulating Rihanna and Chris Brown is a good idea.

      I was going to say Han Solo’s sister, but….

    It matters because we have a beautiful woman who is admired nation-wide by young girls for her athletic accomplishments romantically involved with a man who not only got arrested for violence on their wedding day, but has an extensive criminal history, including accusations of rape. What message does that send? Hope Solo overcame a lot to get where she is today including personal demons. Lot to respect about her. No one wants to have to explain to their daughter why her favorite athlete ended up like Nicole Brown Simpson.

    Hope, if he attacks you again, kick him in the nuts. If that doesn’t stop him, buy a handgun. You have millions of fans. Show them they cannot tolerate abuse.

    Hope just jumped the shark for me on this one. Goodbye pretty girl, I have no further use for you.
