Domestic violence accusation hurled at ex-NFL player

An accusation of domestic violence has been leveled against Jerramy Stevens, a former player for two NFL football teams. Stevens previously played the position of tight end for both the Seahawks and the Buccaneers, but left the NFL in 2010. Stevens was recently arrested and charged with hitting Hope Solo during a party when a fight broke out among eight people at approximately 3:45 a.m. in Seattle. Solo plays women's soccer in the U.S.

Despite the accusation, a trial judge ordered that he be released after he appeared in court, finding that probable cause to detain him was lacking, since there was really nothing to show that he had committed an assault.

Solo, following the confrontation at the party, was seen with blood staining her elbow. Stevens, after the incident, was reported to have blood on his shirt and cheek. The specific charge of fourth degree assault was not based on any statement from the purported victim, since she declined to cooperate with officers investigating the incident.

There were media reports that the two of them may have been dating after she placed a photo of the two of them together. They previously attended the same university. There were also unconfirmed reports that the two of them may have recently been married, and had been together for approximately two months.

Stevens was previously accused of rape and convicted or misdemeanor assault in 2000 while going to college. He has had later arrests for battery, marijuana possession with intent to sell, and drug paraphernalia violations.
