Jerramy Stevens, ex-Seahawks player, arrested for DUI

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Former Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence Monday hours after his former team beat the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game.

Stevens, who is married to Olympic soccer star Hope Solo, was pulled over in the 3500 block of North Sepulveda Boulevard in Manhattan Beach at 1:23 a.m.

Manhattan Beach police say he was driving without his headlights on.

The ex-NFL player was released with a citation and is expected to appear at the Torrance Courthouse on March 19.

Solo, the goalie for the U.S. Women's National Team, was in the vehicle with Stevens during the traffic stop and arrest. Solo played on World Cup teams in 2007 and 2011, and was also a semifinalist on "Dancing with the Stars".

In November 2012, Stevens was arrested after allegedly assaulting Solo. He was never charged for the incident and the two married a day after the charges were dropped.
