KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) — Former Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens appeared in court Tuesday, a day after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence assault following a disturbance at a home in Kirkland, Wash., police said.
A Kirkland Municipal Court judge released him shortly after, saying there was no evidence connecting Stevens to any assault, according to news reports.
News reports, citing court and police records, said U.S. women's soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo appeared in the courtroom Tuesday afternoon.
Stevens and Solo applied for a marriage license last Thursday, according to King County records. KING-TV, citing court documents, reported that Stevens and Solo were set to get married Tuesday and that the argument was over whether to live in Washington or Florida.
Police in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland responded to a disturbance at a home around 3:45 a.m. Monday involving a physical altercation between eight people during a party, said Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray.
He said officers contacted several people in the home who appeared intoxicated and didn't cooperate with police, but determined based on information and observations that there was probable cause to arrest Stevens for investigation of fourth-degree assault involving a 31-year-old woman who received a cut to her elbow.
Murray said Stevens and the alleged victim were dating, and reported to be engaged. He declined to release the victim's name.
Citing a police report, KOMO reported that Solo's younger brother, Marcus, called 911, and that he and Solo told officers there was a party and several unwanted guests showed up and got into a fight with Marcus, who told police he used a stun gun on one of the men.
