Hope Solo was arrested for domestic violence in Seattle early Saturday morning on June 21, the Seattle Times reports. The U.S. Olympic gold medalist soccer player reportedly got into a scuffle with her sister and nephew at her home.
According to the site, the fight left Solo's relatives with "visible injuries." One cop said that there was "a big party going on" and it was an "out of control situation."
The 32-year-old Dancing With the Stars alum—who is the goalkeeper for the Seattle Reign FC—was arrested and is being held without bail for two counts of domestic violence assault. (In October 2011, the athlete accused her DWTS partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy of becoming physically aggressive during their season 11 rehearsals in her book, Solo: A Memoir of Hope.)
Solo has dealt with domestic violence before. In November 2012, her now husband, NFL star Jerramy Stevens, was arrested for allegedly assaulting Solo at their private home in Kirkland, Wash. The couple wed the following day.
