In an odd story out of the sports world, former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly assaulting his fiancee Hope Solo. Solo, a star player for the US Women's soccer team and winner of two gold medals, met Stevens today after he was released from a Court house and not charged with assault due to a lack of probable cause. After leaving the court house, the two were married.

Stevens has a shady history. A former first round draft pick out of Washington, Stevens has been arrested numerous times, including an alleged rape back in 2000. The lead investigators on the case felt like Stevens got away with that crime, and other arrests because of his athletic prowess.
