As Hope Solo prepared to play a friendly against Ireland, her husband, former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens remained at Hillsborough County Jail in Tampa, Fla., after his latest arrest earlier Wednesday.
A warrant for his arrest was issued by the Department of Corrections though Debbie Carter, a spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, told USA TODAY Sports that she did not yet know what Stevens did to violate the terms of his probation. According to the police report, the probation violation involves the possession of cannabis.
A day earlier, Solo met with reporters for the first time since she married Stevens on Nov. 13. The two were married a day after his arrest at a party for domestic violence in Kirkland, Wash. A judge found no probable cause to keep Stevens in custody and released him. However, police officials have decided to continue their investigation.
"My life is great," the goalkeeper said, according to the Associated Press. "My life is happy."
"It's unfortunate what the media can do to judge before the facts are out there. It's hard to see, but it's a hard truth, and it's part of life," she said. "I'm happy. I'm happily married. I would never stand for domestic violence. I've never been hit in my life."
Stevens, 33, was placed on probation through October 2013 for a marijuana charge in 2010.
