(WSCR) It’s every girl’s dream.
When young girls dream of their wedding day, it always consists of a morning spent in a Kirkland courthouse, right?
That’s how it was for Olympic soccer star Hope Solo and her new husband, former Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens.
After Stevens spent the morning in court, fighting a fourth-degree assault arrest where he was accused of assaulting his soon-to-be-wife, he and fiancee Solo headed to the chapel to tie to knot.
The wedding was reported by multiple sources, including Dave Mahler, a sport-talk radio host on KJR, and KING-5 News.
Jillian Loyden, a backup goalkeeper to Solo on the U.S. National women’s soccer team, apparently attended the wedding. A Twitter post attributed to Loyden said: “Happy to witness such an amazing celebration of real love.”
The ceremony and reception came only a few hours after Stevens, who turned 33 on Tuesday, and Solo, 31, appeared in Kirkland Municipal Court after the former football star allegedly assaulted his fiancee early Monday. A stun gun was reportedly used to break up the altercation.
Police were summoned to Solo’s Kirkland home by her brother, Marcus, and Stevens was arrested while hiding in an upstairs bedroom, according to police.
Stevens was released because of insufficient evidence and the incident is being investigated.
The couple, who may have been dating about two months, applied for a marriage license Nov. 8.
