Solo was also charged. with child abuse and resisting a public officer in connection with the March 31 incident. His attorney, Chris Clifton, said both charges were voluntarily dismissed, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.

A judge gave Solo, 40, of Roaring Gap in Alleghany County, a 24-month suspended sentence and 30 days of active duty, a news release from the Forsyth County District Attorney’s office said. He was given 30 days credit for time spent in an inpatient rehabilitation facility. The judge also ordered Solo to pay a $2,500 fine and a $600 fee for the cost of the lab tests. He must also receive a substance abuse diagnosis and complete all prescribed treatment.

Roaring Gap is about 60 miles (96 km) northwest of Winston-Salem.

In a statement released after her guilty plea, Solo said that while she was proud of motherhood and how she and her husband handled their children during the pandemic, “It’s been incredibly difficult and I Made a huge mistake.”

“Easily the worst mistake of my life. I underestimated how much alcohol had become a destructive part of my life,” he said. “The upside of making such a big mistake is that hard lessons are learned quickly. Learning those lessons has been hard and sometimes very painful.

Solo was arrested in the parking lot of a shopping center in Winston-Salem, according to a police report. According to the arrest warrant, a passerby saw Solow behind the steering wheel for more than an hour with the engine running and the two children in the back seat.

The responding officer could smell alcohol, and Solo refused a field sobriety test, the warrant said.

Solo was taken to the magistrate’s office, where he refused to submit to a breathalyzer test, so police obtained a search warrant for a blood sample. Solo had a blood alcohol content of 0.24%, three times the legal limit. Tests also showed Solo had THC in his system, according to the police report.

Solo was dismissed from the national team after the 2016 Olympics in Brazil after calling the Swedish team “cowards” for taking a defensive stand against the defending gold medalists, ending an illustrious sporting career that was mired in controversy.

She was suspended for 30 days in early 2015 after she and husband Jeremy Stevens were pulled over in an American Soccer-owned van and Stevens was charged with DUI. He was also benched after publicly questioning coach Greg Ryan’s decision to start Brianna Scurry against Brazil during the 2007 World Cup, with many dismissing comments against Scurry.

Solo was also involved in an altercation with family members in 2014 that led to Solo’s arrest, though charges in that case were dropped.

Solo made 202 appearances with the national team, with international records of 153 wins and 102 shutouts. He won a World Cup title and two Olympic gold medals with the team.

During the 2015 World Cup Championship run, he allowed just three goals in seven games with five shutouts.

She was elected to the US Soccer Hall of Fame in January. The induction ceremony was scheduled for May 21, but the newspaper reported that Solo requested that the ceremony be postponed until next year.

Solo married Stevens, a former tight end for the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in 2012. The couple’s twins, Vittorio Chingiz and Luzien Oriana Judith Stevens, were born on March 4, 2020.
