Former Washington Huskies and Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens was in court Tuesday, accused of striking his fiance, two-time Olympic gold medal soccer player Hope Solo. But a judge released him a short time later, saying there was no probable cause that Stevens assaulted Solo.
Kirkland police say officers were sent to a home in the 6400 block of NE 138th Place at 3:45 a.m. Monday to respond to a 911 call from Marcus Solo, Hope's brother, about a fight between eight people at a party. The fight allegedly included the use of a stun gun.
According to court documents, Stevens and Solo were set to get married Tuesday and that the argument was over whether to live inWashington or Florida.
Officers at the scene allegedly found Solo with a laceration to her elbow. A 32-year-old woman was found with a hip injury and a 34-year-old man had bumps, scrapes and contusions.

The other two people who were injured said they had been assaulted by another man who had come to the party, but left before police arrived. They only provided a vague description of the suspect.
Solo, also a former Washington Husky, was in the courtroom Tuesday during Stevens' hearing. She said nothing as she left the courtroom and left the courthouse in a waiting vehicle.
