Hope Solo admits to driving under the influence charges.

Hope Solo, the former US national team goalkeeper, has pleaded guilty to driving while impaired after being found passed out behind the wheel with her two-year-old twins in the vehicle. Solo also faced charges of misdemeanor child abuse and resisting a public officer, which were dismissed voluntarily. Solo received a 24-month suspended sentence and a 30-day active sentence, with credit given for the time she spent at a rehabilitation facility. She was also ordered to pay $2,500 in fines and complete a substance abuse assessment and all suggested treatments. Following the guilty plea, Solo issued a statement in which she admitted making a mistake and said alcohol had become a destructive part of her life. Solo’s arrest was not her first brush with controversy, having previously been dismissed from the national team in 2016 for making disparaging remarks about the Swedish team and suspended in 2015 for 30 days after she and her husband were pulled over in a US Soccer-owned van and her husband was charged with DUI. In 2014, Solo was also arrested after an altercation with family, but those charges were later dropped.
