Kirkland police later released more details, per Jennifer Sullivan of the Seattle Times.
On June 21st 2014 and just before 1:00 am, Kirkland Police Department Patrol Units responded to a 911 call of a disturbance in the 10600 block of 124th AVE NE. The male caller stated that a female at the residence was “hitting people” and they could not get her to stop or to leave the house. Officer arrived and immediately heard the sounds of the disturbance inside the residence.

As officers made contact, they observed visible injuries on Solo’s 17-year-old nephew and on Solo’s sister. After receiving statements of the persons involved, Officers determined that Solo was the primary aggressor and had instigated the assault.
Solo will have to appear in court on Monday. Both the Seattle Reign FC and US Soccer released statements saying they are aware of the situation but have no further comment at this time.
Solo is no stranger to controversy. She got into it with some Portland Thorns fans over a middle finger about a month ago and has always been known for being extremely outspoken.
