Hope Solo 911 Call (2014)

The Hope Solo 911 call was made early Saturday morning when the U.S. national soccer goalie allegedly attacked her half-sister and her nephew, 17.

"Hope Solo is going psychotic," the caller pleads, apparently under siege from the 32-year-old athlete. "She’s f–king beating people up! We need help!"

Police raced to her sister’s home outside Seattle and found the sister and nephew with visible injuries; subsequently, Hope was arrested for domestic violence.

Her nephew told TMZ that Solo drunkenly came at him for basically no reason and he pulled a gun (the mom says it was a BB gun) on her to make it stop.


To no avail, the kid says, as Hope – who was also part of a domestic incident with now-husband Jerramy Stevens in 2012 – circled him like a shark.
