One day after Jerramy Stevens was arrested for allegedly assaulting fiancée Hope Solo, the couple exchanged vows. Stevens was in court on Tuesday morning to face charges of domestic assault, but later in the day he and Solo said, "I do" in a small ceremony.
Steven was arrested after an incident with Solo led to a physical altercation. Stevens was charged with fourth-degree assault, and Solo was left with a cut on her elbow. When police arrived at what was a house party with several people, Stevens "appeared to be hiding" between the bed and a wall in a bedroom, and when they saw dried blood on his shirt, he was taken into custody. However, authorities did not have enough evidence to hold him and released him the following morning.
"If officers find that an assault may have taken place, then we have to make an arrest on who we determine is the primary aggressor," Kirkland Police Lt. Mike Murray told the Associated Press.
Solo and Stevens have been together for two months and were allegedly arguing over whether to live in Washington or Florida when the altercation occurred, court documents state. However, police were not called to the house party until one member was tasered during the gathering.
Solo is fresh off of an Olympic gold medal win. She has also become known for her, at times, outrageous behavior on the field. In 2007, she famously criticized her World Cup coach's decision and was dismissed from the team. Then she played in the 2008 summer Olympics and, after winning the gold, described going on NBC's "Today" show "drunk."
Her fiancé Stevens has had several run-ins with the law. He has been cited more than once for drunk and reckless driving as recently as 2007. In 2010, while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Stevens was arrested for possession of marijuana. He was subsequently dismissed from the team.
"Happy to witness such an amazing celebration of real love #selflesslove #fewandfarbetween," tweeted Solo's teammate Jillian Loydon.
