U.S. Soccer Star Hope Solo in Trouble Again, Suspended for 30 Days


Hope Solo can’t seem to stay of trouble. The U.S. Women’s Soccer team goalie has been suspended for 30 days for a recent “incident.”

“During our current National Team camp, Hope made a poor decision that has resulted in a negative impact on U.S. Soccer and her teammates,” coach Jill Ellis said in a statement. “We feel at this time it is best for her to step away from the team.”

U.S. Soccer is cagey about exactly why she was punished but her suspension follows the arrest of her husband Jerramy Stevens, former Seattle Seahawks tight end, on suspicion of drunk driving, according to the Associated Press. Solo was in the car when Stevens was pulled over by cops in Manhattan Beach, California on Monday for driving without headlights.

Solo, who wasn’t arrested, is in town for the U.S. national team’s training camp to prepare for World Cup beginning in June. Her suspension bans her from the team’s forthcoming matches in Europe.

Earlier this month, domestic violence charges against Solo for allegedly attacking her half-sister and nephew were dropped.
