Domestic violence charges dropped against Hope Solo


Soccer star Hope Solo, 33, won’t be facing domestic violence charges. Solo was charged last June with two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault, for allegedly assaulting her half-sister and 17-year-old nephew.

On Tuesday, all charges were dismissed. Kirkland judge Michael Lambo reportedly felt the case was “impermissibly prejudiced” and “materially affected” because of the lack of cooperation by witnesses.
