U.S. women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo become a subject of controversy, due to being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence last June.
Solo has been accused of abusing her half-sister and nephew and being the primary aggressor, and she allegedly slammed her half-sister’s head into the floor while lashing out.
Police officers claimed that Solo was hostile when they were arresting her, and she even proceeded to resist arrest and insult them.
Despite all of these allegations, Solo’s husband, Jerramy Stevens, insists that the investigation is wrong and had some choice words for it.
“It is a witch hunt, you can put that in the paper,” Stevens said to ESPN.
Stevens is a former NFL tight end who played for the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Solo has had two misdemeanor counts of domestic violence dismissed, and she has resumed playing in the 2015 Women’s World Cup.
Stevens has been in some trouble with the law of his own, as he was pulled over for drunk driving, which caused Solo to get suspended from U.S. Soccer for 30 days.
The U.S. has defeated Australia and tied with Sweden in the group stage so far, and they lead Group D with four points.
