We thought that the allegations surrounding Maks Chmerkovskiy’s treatment of Hope Solo on Dancing with the Stars were strange, but they pale in comparison to the latest drama in Hope’s life. After having planned to get hitched to fiance and former football star Jerramy Stevens this week, an arrest forced Hope to postpone the big event. Why was Hope Solo’s fiance arrested and what did the former DWTS contestant have to say about the charges?
Details are emerging about the recent assault charges filed against Jerramy Stevens, the former tight end also known as Hope Solo’s fiance. So far, we know that the charges came in the aftermath of a house party fight. Police responded to a disturbance call from Hope’s brother Marcus early on Monday morning and promptly found Jerramy on the floor between a bed and the wall. Jerramy claimed to be “sleeping” not hiding, and when questioned about the blood on his face, he claimed that it was a kiss from Hope.
Hope Solo didn’t prove any more cooperative than her fiance. As the police entered the house, she warned her brother not to tell them anything. And during a court appearance on Tuesday, Hope said that Jerramy was innocent of the fourth-degree misdemeanor assault that had been filed against him. Police filed this charge based on the presence of blood, the information from Marcus, Jerramy’s admission to an argument with Hope and further signs of an altercation.
After appearing in court on Tuesday, Jerramy was promptly dismissed on the judge due to a lack of direct evidence. Now, the big question is, will the two still be getting married? They’ve only been dating for two months, and it appears their brief time together has been fraught with tension. If they do go ahead with the wedding, we foresee a divorce in the near future.
