U.S. soccer player and Tv personality Hope Solo has spent the weekend (21-22Jun14) in jail after she was arrested following an alleged domestic disturbance at her home.

The 32 year old was detained in the early hours of Saturday morning (21Jun14) after cops were called to the house in Seattle, Washington she shares with her husband, former football player Jerramy Stevens.

Solo was arrested on suspicion of assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew during a family party at the property. She was held without bail over the weekend and is expected to appear in court on Monday (23Jun14).

Her attorney, Todd Maybrown, tells the Associated Press, "Hope is not guilty of any crime. In fact, our investigation reveals that Hope was assaulted and injured during this unfortunate incident. We look forward to the opportunity to present the true facts in court and to having this matter behind Hope very soon."
