KOMO-TV in Seattle has obtained tapes of the 911 calls about the pre-wedding fight involving soccer star Hope Solo and her fiancée — now husband — former Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens.
Stevens was arrested last November for fourth degree domestic violence assault after an argument with Solo, who is a two-time Olympic gold medalist.
The argument happened in Solo’s home in Kirkland, Wash., early in the morning on their wedding day on Nov. 12, 2012.
Hope Solo’s brother, Marcus, called 911 four times just after 3:00 a.m. He said about eight people were inside the home, including Hope Solo and Stevens.
“There was a little fight inside the house and she got thrown to the ground and she might have dislocated her hip,” Marcus Solo told the dispatcher. He was referring to another woman who had been injured.
Marcus Solo said the group had been drinking alcohol when things turned physical. He also said a stun gun had been used. But he wouldn’t give dispatchers any information about who was involved.
When police officers arrived, Hope Solo had a bloody elbow, and Marcus Solo had head, eye and knee injuries. Another woman was on the floor with a hip injury. Blood was seen throughout the house.
Jerramy Stevens was found upstairs. Police said he “appeared to be hiding.” Stevens claimed he was sleeping and never heard anything.
Officers arrested Stevens, but a judge set him free the next day for lack of evidence.
Hope Solo and Stevens were married a few hours later.
The soccer star has maintained that Stevens never hit her.
“I’m happy,” Solo said. “I’m happily married. I would never stand for domestic violence. I’ve never been hit in my life. My life is great.”
The Kirkland Police Department closed the case and referred it to prosecutors.
