US Women’s Soccer goalie Hope Solo will miss the next two games after being suspended after her husband’s arrest on drunken driving charges.
But why is SHE paying for HIS mistake?
Allegedly Hope was with hubby Jerramy Stevens when he was arrested early Monday morning for driving under the influence. Though she isn’t facing any charges , TMZ reports that Solo was “acting belligerent” and recorded the officers on her cell phone.
“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,” U.S. coach Jill Ellis said in a statement. “We feel at this time it is best for her to step away from the team.”
Solo released a statement after the suspension was announced. “I accept and respect the federation’s decision, and more importantly, I apologize for disappointing my teammates, coaches and the federation who have always supported me,” she said. “I think it’s best for me to take a break, decompress from the stress of the last several months, and come back mentally and physically ready to positively contribute to the team.”
