Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk has more on the events surrounding the arrest, including Stevens' checkered past:
A police report in the incident said Stevens and Solo had an altercation that started with a dispute over where they would live after they got married, but the day after Stevens was arrested, a judge ruled that there was no evidence to charge Stevens with a crime. (Solo, pictured exiting the courtroom, appeared in court during the brief hearing at which Stevens was released but did not speak.)
Stevens has a long criminal history stretching back to his days as a high school football star, with arrests for sexual assault, felony battery, failing a drug test while on probation and drunk driving among the charges.
According to Phuong Le of the Associated Press (h/t MercuryNews.com), Stevens was arrested for fourth-degree domestic violence assault. The couple had already applied for a marriage license and were set to wed on Tuesday evening, but on Monday they got in an argument about living in Washington or Florida.
According to court documents, officers had originally been called to the scene responding to a complaint about a fight at a party in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland. There, officers saw dried blood on Stevens' shirt and discovered that Solo had a cut on her elbow, leading to Steven's arrest.
One way or another, the pair are man and wife now. It certainly was a whirlwind couple of days for the newlyweds.
And honestly, what could be more romantic than getting married just hours after being released by a judge without being charged for domestic violence?
Pretty much everything, it turns out.
