Hope Solo, goal keeper for the USWNT, has been suspended, in a story first reported by TMZ.
The gist: her husband, former NFL receiver Jerramy Stevens, was driving while intoxicated. She was a passenger and became belligerent with police. She was not arrested.
Regardless of what happened, she should know better than to get into a car with someone who has been drinking. She should also know NOT to bother police a-la Reese Witherspoon. Let’s hope this is a wake-up call as her recent battery charges were dropped. She is a great player, and an integral part of the USWNT.
The good news: the Women’s World Cup is still months away.
