The U.S. women soccer team’s 32-year-old goalie Hope Solo pleaded not guilty to the domestic violence charge leveled against her following her arrest at her sister’s house in Seattle on June 21, the Associated Press reported.
Solo was told by the city prosecutor not to contact her sister and not to drink alcohol for an indefinite amount of time, although she was released without having to pay bail. The Kirkland, Washington police attested to Solo’s intoxication that night when she was accused of assaulting her sister and her sister’s 17-year-old son. They were alerted when a witness called and said a female was hitting people at the house. According to court documents, Solo and her nephew got into a fist fight after she allegedly insulted his acting career and appearance.
