The 32-year-old Solo, who is listed as "Hope Amelia Stevens" on the registry list at the county jail, will have a mandatory court appearance on Monday at the Kirkland Municipal Court.
Solo is the goalkeeper for the Seattle Reign FC. "We are aware of the situation regarding Hope Solo and are currently gathering information," the team said in a statement.
U.S. Soccer issued the following statement: "We are aware of the situation. At this point, we do not have any further comments."
Officers were called to Solo's home in Kirkland just before 1 a.m. PT Saturday because of an assault and noise disturbance. A male caller stated that a female was "hitting people."
When officers arrived at the home, which Solo shares with husband and former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, Solo appeared intoxicated, and officers noticed "visible injuries" to her sister and 17-year old nephew, according to the statement. After interviewing witnesses who were present, officers determined Solo instigated the assault and was the "primary aggressor."
"There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation," Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray told The Seattle Times.
