KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) - U.S. women's soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo is scheduled to appear in court Monday in connection with her domestic violence arrest at her sister's home in Kirkland, in suburban Seattle.

Officers said Solo was intoxicated early Saturday when she was accused of assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew.

But her lawyer, Todd Maybrown, says she was a victim in the altercation.
