According to the team, the suspension stemmed from “an incident that occurred during the current WNT training camp being held in Carson, California. Including her dispute with the police earlier this week.

Solo according to reliable sources, was a passenger in a car driven by her former NFL player husband Jerramy Stevens, where he was arrested on suspicion of driving under influence (DUI) in Manhattan Beach, CA early Monday morning.

Solo and Stevens were also called "a major pain," –TMZ Sports

The U.S Soccer has issued a statement saying
“During our current national team camp, Hope made a poor decision that has resulted in a negative impact on U.S. Soccer and her teammates. We feel at this time it is best for her to step away from the team.”

However Hope Solo accepted the Federation’s decision and apologizes on teammates, coaches who have always supported her via her Facebook page.

I accept and respect the Federation’s decision, and more importantly, I apologize for disappointing my teammates, coaches and the Federation who have always supported me. I think it’s best for me to take a break, decompress from the stress of the last several months, and come back mentally and physically ready to positively contribute to the team.
