Hope Solo suspended for latest incident, but will U.S. Soccer bring her back?

Hope Solo suspended for latest incident but will U S Soccer bring her back
Hope Solo, the star goalkeeper of the United States women’s national team, has been suspended for 30 days because of an "incident" during the team’s ongoing training camp in Southern California, U.S. Soccer announced. The suspension is effective immediately.

According to TMZ Sports, Solo, 33, was in a car with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, when they were pulled over around 2 a.m. on Monday. Stevens was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. Solo was also heavily inebriated, according to the report.

The incident occurred just a week after the dismissal of Solo’s domestic violence case in which she had been charged with two counts of assault for a June altercation with her half-sister and nephew.

"During our current National Team camp, Hope made a poor decision that has resulted in a negative impact on U.S. Soccer and her teammates," U.S. head coach Jill Ellis said in a statement. "We feel at this time it is best for her to step away from the team."

Solo responded on Facebook. "I accept and respect the Federation’s decision, and more importantly, I apologize for disappointing my teammates, coaches and the Federation who have always supported me," she wrote. "I think it’s best for me to take a break, decompress from the stress of the last several months, and come back mentally and physically ready to positively contribute to the team."
