U.S. women's national soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo issued an apology to her fans and teammates Thursday for her recent arrest on domestic violence charges.
"I love my family dearly," Solo wrote in a post on Facebook. "We, like all families, have our challenges but my sincere hope is that we are able to resolve this situation as a family.”
Solo pleaded not guilty Monday to two counts of domestic violence stemming from her arrest Saturday.
Solo, 32, was arrested at her sister's home in Kirkland, Wash., early Saturday after she was accused of assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew.
“Due to pending legal issues, I cannot comment further at this time. However, I am confident in the legal process and believe my name will be cleared,” Solo said.
Solo was booked on two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault.
She is scheduled to make another court appearance Aug. 11.
Solo's lawyer insisted his client didn't commit a crime and said that she is the real victim of the alleged incident.
Solo was involved in another domestic violence incident in November 2012 when her then-fiance, Jerramy Stevens, was arrested for allegedly assaulting her. Stevens was never charged, however, and the two married shortly afterward.
