Hope Solo's Arrest: New Details Emerge About 2014 Domestic Violence Case

Hope Solo, U.S. women's soccer superstar, is once again making news after new details about last year's domestic violence arrest emerged this week as the Americans prepare for their opening game in the World Cup this week.

An ESPN "Outside The Lines" episode broadcast Sunday reviewed police reports that described an apparently intoxicated Solo badgering officers after her arrest June 21, 2014, and also included insights from goalie's half-sister and alleged victim Teresa Obert.

"The police were trying to book her into jail, but Solo was so combative that she had to be forced to the ground, prompting her to yell at one officer, 'You're such a b****. You're scared of me because you know that if the handcuffs were off, I'd kick you’re a**,'" ESPN reported.

"Solo . . . had repeatedly hurled insults at the officers processing her arrest, suggesting that two jailers were having sex and calling another officer a '14-year-old boy.' When asked to remove a necklace, an apparently drunk Solo told the officer that the piece of jewelry was worth more than he made in a year."

Obert, 43, said she decided to speak to ESPN after she was upset by a "Good Morning America" interview that 33-year-old Solo gave in February, in which the soccer star accused Obert's 17-year-old son of attacking her the night of the altercation.

"I felt like I had just been kicked in the head," Obert told ESPN. "She should have been happy, but then, randomly, she goes on 'Good Morning America' and lies. I was very upset. It never had anything to do with size. She has tried to make him feel small his whole life. He's not aggressive. She's a trained athlete. She's strong."

Solo last week rejected attempts by reporters to talk about case, which was dismissed in January on procedural discovery rules when a judge ruled that Obert and her son were uncooperative, noted ESPN. The City of Kirkland, Washington, where the case originated, has since filed an appeal with the Superior Court of Washington.

"I'm here to talk about the World Cup and soccer," Solo told reporters in New York City last week, according to NBC Sports. "What I can tell you is that I'm in the best place in my life both on the field and off the field. I have great teammates behind me, a great coaching staff, and I'm just honestly really excited for my third World Cup."

The U.S. takes on Australia in the first game of the Women's World Cup Monday night.
