(Newser) – Olympic soccer star Hope Solo and former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens were supposed to get married yesterday—instead, they were in a Washington state court after Stevens, 33, was arrested on suspicion of assaulting Solo, 31, the day before. Trouble erupted at a party at Solo's Washington home, where police were called by Solo's brother early Monday on reports of an eight-person brawl. They found Stevens, apparently hiding, in an upstairs bedroom; he claimed he'd been sleeping, the New York Daily News reports. Cops arrested Stevens after finding blood on his shirt and Solo with an injured elbow; Stevens admitted the two had argued.

He was arrested for domestic assault but never charged, and the judge released him yesterday after determining there was insufficient evidence to prove he hurt Solo. She gave a statement in court, through her attorney, testifying that she was not assaulted, Radar reports, but police are still investigating and E! notes that the city district attorney could still file charges. The subject of the Solo-Stevens fight? Whether they'll live in Washington or Florida. The pair applied for a marriage license on Nov. 8, after dating only two months. The Seattle Times, citing multiple reports, says the couple is still planning to go through with the wedding.

So now she can get out of the relationship before getting married--unless she's stupid and thinks he will change!
