Ex-USWNT goaltender Hope Solo arrested on DWI, misdemeanor child abuse charges 

Former United States goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested Thursday in North Carolina 

charged with driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest, and misdemeanor child abuse 

Solo was taken into custody on Thursday at the Forsyth County jail in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. 

An arrest warrant stated someone spotted Solo passed out in a vehicle with the engine running for more than an hour at a Walmart parking lot 

that her two-year-old twins she has with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, were with her at the time in the backseat. 

Solo refused a field sobriety test and her blood was drawn instead. She has been ordered to appear in court on June 28. 

On the advice of counsel, Hope can't speak about this situation, but she wants everyone to know that her kids are her life 

she was released immediately and is now at home with her family
