Former NFL player Jerramy Stevens was released without charge on Nov. 13 after his arrest on suspicion of assaulting his fiancee, U.S. women’s football team goalkeeper Hope Solo.

Stevens, a former tight end for the Seattle Seahawks, was arrested on suspicion of fourth-degree assault, but the bail hearing judge found no probable cause to hold Stevens and released him. So far, Stevens has not been charged. The pair had planned to marry on Nov. 13. Instead, Solo was at Stevens’ hearing.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that police said Solo was not cooperative when they responded to a disturbance at 3:45 a.m. on Nov. 12.

Police said they found Stevens hiding on the floor in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Stevens told police he was sleeping and did not know anything about a loud disturbance at the house involving some unwanted guests who had left before police arrived.

Stevens had dried blood on his shirt and cheek, and police said there were indications of a fight in the bedroom. Stevens said the blood on his face was from a kiss from Solo.

Stevens told police he and Solo, the starting goalkeeper for the USA’s women’s national team and a two-time Olympic gold medalist, had been arguing about where they would live once they got married.
