Hope Solo’s attorney has spoken out against reports of the soccer star’s arrest on Friday.

According to the Huffington Post, the Olympian was taken into police custody after a domestic disturbance at a family gathering in Seattle over the weekend. Solo reportedly got into a fight with her sister and her 17-year-old nephew. Police say Solo was intoxicated and the sister and nephew had visible injuries – but her attorney Todd Maybrown tells another story.

“Hope is not guilty of any crime,” attorney Todd Maybrown said in an email to The Associated Press Saturday. “In fact, our investigation reveals that Hope was assaulted and injured during this unfortunate incident. We look forward to the opportunity to present the true facts in court and to having this matter behind Hope very soon.”

Police charged Solo with fourth-degree domestic violence. She will make an appearance in Kirkland Municipal court on Monday.

Officers responded to her sister’s home just before 1 a.m. Saturday after receiving a 911 call that a woman at the Kirkland residence was hitting people and that she refused to stop or leave, the Kirkland Police Department said in a news release.

Solo, who plays for the Seattle Reign, hasn’t released any statements on the charges but her team did acknowledge the situation on their Twitter account over the weekend.

“We are aware of the situation with Hope and are now gathering information,” the Reign posted on the team’s Twitter feed.

Solo has helped the U.S. women’s soccer team earn two gold Olympic medals. In the past, she has spoken out against domestic violence after rumors that her husband physically attacked her.

“It’s unfortunate what the media can do to judge before the facts are out there. It’s hard to see, but it’s a hard truth, and it’s part of life,” she said then. “I’m happy. I’m happily married. I would never stand for domestic violence. I’ve never been hit in my life.”

Hope’s family has yet to speak out on the incident.
