The 911 tapes from the night of the altercation at Hope Solo’s home in November have been released. The call, which was placed by Solo’s brother Marcus Solo, helps paint a better picture of how confusing the situation was and why it led to Jerramy Stevens avoiding a domestic violence charge.
Toward the beginning of the 911 call, Marcus Solo explains to the dispatcher that there was a physical altercation inside the home and that a woman was thrown to the ground and may have injured her hip. He also said that a stun gun was used during the melee and that an “innocent bystander” was hurt. When the dispatcher began asking Marcus for names and specifics, he would not comply.
“Who was the person who was the instigator?” the dispatcher asked.
“We won’t go there,” Marcus replied. “Please get here.”
Toward the end of the phone call, Hope Solo can be heard lecturing her brother about how her husband (Stevens) is going to go to jail because he’s on probation. When police arrived at Solo’s house, they said Stevens “appeared to be hiding” upstairs. They also found Hope with a bloody elbow and Marcus with injuries to his head, eye and knees.
Kirkland Police have completed their domestic violence investigation and sent the case to prosecutors, who are still trying to determine if Stevens will be charged. After the incident, Solo told the media that she has never been hit before and that her life is great. While it’s tough to tell exactly what happened at her house in November, it’s obvious her brother did not help matters by being so vague.Google+
