Hope Solo, Former U.S. Soccer Star, Charged With Impaired Driving
Former U.S. women's national team star goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested after
she was found passed out behind the wheel of a vehicle in North Carolina with her 2-year-old twins inside, police said.
A police report said Solo was arrested on Thursday in a shopping center parking lot in Winston-Salem and
charged with driving while impaired, resisting a public officer and misdemeanor child abuse.
She has been released from jail and has a court date of June 28, the report indicated.
According to an arrest warrant, a passerby noticed Solo passed out behind the steering wheel for more than an hour with the vehicle's engine running and the two children in the backseat.
A responding officer could smell alcohol, and the warrant said that Solo refused a field sobriety test and that her blood was drawn instead.
