Officers say they responded just before 1 a.m. Saturday, after receiving a 911 call that a woman at the Kirkland residence was hitting people. Police say they found Solo intoxicated and upset, and they saw injuries on her 17-year-old nephew and her sister.

Kirkland police say officers arrested Solo after speaking with those present and determining that Solo was the aggressor.

She been booked into jail and is expected to appear Monday at Kirkland Municipal Court.

Solo is a goalkeeper for the U.S. women's national team. She is married to former Seattle Seahawk Jerramy Stevens.
