Two weeks after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting Hope Solo – then his fiancee, now his wife – Jerramy Stevens is in jail for violating his probation.
The ex-NFL player was taken into custody in Tampa for purportedly violating his probation earned from a prior arrest for marijuana possession.
The Florida Department of Corrections said the violation resulted from the altercation Stevens, 33, got into on November 12 at a late night party in Kirkland, Wash.
Police say that Stevens’ outburst involved eight people, including his soccer star fiancée.
As a consequence of that transgression, however, Florida authorities still decided to issue a warrant for his arrest and Stevens was picked up Wednesday.
As Lindsay Lohan knows, all it takes to violate probation is an arrest, not a conviction. Stevens is currently in jail awaiting an appearance before a judge.
Stevens has been on probation for a previous drug possession charge from October 2010 when he was nabbed after cops found a baggie of pot on him.
He was playing for NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the time.
Predictably, Solo took to Twitter to comment on the situation:
“I feel bad for all the ignorance in the world,” she wrote.
“People are so quick to judge. The media spins stories in such dramatic fashion.”
“I will Continue to show love,and never make judgements. I am blessed w True Love & the beautiful game of soccer. I wish everybody the same happiness.”
Solo added: “Needing my True fans tonight! Its not often i get to play in the beautiful NW! Show your love tonight my friends! Thank you for your support!”
The two-time Olympic gold medalist also spoke out for the first time yesterday about the alleged assault that occurred on the eve of their nuptials.
“My life is great. My life is happy,” Hope told Larry Brown Sports. “It’s unfortunate what the media can do to really judge before the facts are out there.”
“It’s hard to see, but it’s a hard truth and it’s part of life,” Solo said.
“I’m happy. I’m happily married. We never stand for domestic violence. I’ve never been hit in my life. It’s unfortunate, and that’s what the media can do.”
