According to multiple reports, former Huskies' and Seahawks' tight end Jerramy Stevens has been arrested on investigation of fourth-degree domestic violence assault for an attack on Hope Solo -- the troubled football player's fiancee.
KING 5 reported that the 33-year-old Stevens was in Kirkland Municipal Court today to face allegations that he struck Solo. Stories by KING 5 and the Seattle Times note that Kirkland police responded to an altercation Monday allegedly involving eight people and the use of a stun gun.
According to KING 5, shortly after appearing in court a judge released Stevens, saying there was no probable cause that the ex-Husky tight end assaulted the ex-Husky soccer player. The story also notes that police received the 911 call from Marcus Solo, Hope's brother.
More from KING 5:
Kirkland police say officers were sent to a home in the 6400 block of NE 138th Place at 3:45 a.m. Monday to respond to a 911 call from Marcus Solo, Hope's brother, about a fight between eight people at a party. The fight allegedly included the use of a stun gun.
According to court documents, Stevens and Solo were set to get married Tuesday and that the argument was over whether to live in Washington or Florida.
Officers at the scene allegedly found Solo with a laceration to her elbow. A 32-year-old woman was found with a hip injury and a 34-year-old man had bumps, scrapes and contusions.
Stevens was arrested on investigation of fourth-degree domestic violence.
The KING 5 story says that the two other people injured at the party told police their bumps and bruises came from an unidentified man who showed up at the part but left before police arrived, providing authorities with only a "vague description" of their attacker.
Naturally, Deadspin is all over the story.
Interestingly, many who had no idea Stevens and Solo were engaged (like, for instance, me) found out JUST THIS MORNING via a tweet from KJR's Dave "Softy" Mahler (time-stamped at 9:18 a.m.):
