But things aren’t pitch perfect for the veteran shot-stopper as she was arrested recently after an argument with family members turned from bad to worse in a matter of minutes. Police officers had to arrive to the Seattle home where Hope Solo lives with her husband, the former NFL player Jerramy Stevens.

According to statements released by the police officers who arrived to the home of Solo, she was drunk and angry. Hope Solo was the main assailant which led to physical altercations between the American goalkeeper and her sisters as well as nephews who ended up with clear injuries in their bodies.

It was later revealed to the media that there was a party at her house which went out of control at a certain point of time.

Hope Solo later went on apologizing to her fans through social media as she wrote on her facebook page: "I love my family dearly. We, like all families, have our challenges but my sincere hope is that we are able to resolve this situation as a family," she said. Adversity has always made us stronger and I know this situation will be no different. I understand that, as a public figure, I am held to a higher standard of conduct. I take seriously my responsibilities as a role model and sincerely apologize to everyone I have disappointed."

The American goalkeeper pleaded not guilty to all the charges that was launched at her in court and was released without bail.
