The one-time NFL tight end, 33, had been on probation in Florida linked to a previous cannabis possession charge, according to officials.
A Department of Corrections spokesperson said the violation is likely tied to a stipulation in Stevens’ Florida probation that the former Seattle Seahawk couldn’t get arrested while in Washington state, which he did during a November 12 fight with his now-wife earlier this month, KING-TV reported. (The case was subsequently dropped.)
Solo, the 31-year-old goalkeeper of the U.S. women’s soccer team, who went on to compete in Dancing with the Stars, is no stranger to controversy. She wed Stevens right after the incident after a whirlwind two-month courtship.
On Tuesday, Solo, practicing with the U.S. national team in Portland, Oregon, told reporters her life is currently ”great” and “happy.”
“It’s unfortunate what the media can do to judge before the facts are out there,” she said. “It’s hard to see, but it’s a hard truth, and it’s part of life. I’m happy. I’m happily married.
“I would never stand for domestic violence. I’ve never been hit in my life.”
Stevens, a standout at the University of Washington, has a checkered history of off-the-field incidents, including reckless driving charges for crashing his vehicle into a nursing home in 2000.
