Police say U.S. women's soccer star Hope Solo has been arrested at a suburban Seattle home for assaulting her sister and nephew.
 
Officers say they responded just before 1 a.m. Saturday, after receiving a 911 call that a woman at the Kirkland residence was hitting people. Police say they found Solo intoxicated and upset, and they saw injuries on her 17-year-old nephew and her sister.
 
A news release from Kirkland police said officers arrested Solo after speaking with those present and determining that Solo was the aggressor.
 
She was arrested for investigation of two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault and booked into jail. She is expected to appear Monday at Kirkland Municipal Court.
 
Solo is a goalkeeper for the U.S. women's national team. She is married to former Seattle Seahawk Jerramy Stevens.
