Police in Kirkland, Wash., say former Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens appeared in court Tuesday after being arrested hours earlier on suspicion of domestic violence assault.
Seattlepi.com says a Kirkland Municipal Court judge released Stevens saying there was no evidence connecting Stevens to any assault. The website reported that U.S. women's national soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo was in court Tuesday.
Lt. Mike Murray says officers responded to a disturbance at a home in a Seattle suburb around 3:45 a.m. Monday. He says officers didn't get cooperation from the people at the home, but determined there was probable cause to arrest Stevens on fourth-degree assault.
Murray says Stevens and his victim were dating. He declined to release the victim's name but said she received a laceration to the elbow but the injury was minor. He says one other person had to be taken to the hospital for treatment of a hip injury.
