Unstoppable beating machine Hope Solo was arrested Friday when she would not stop punching people.

The arrest occurred just before 1 a.m. at Hope Solo’s home in Kirkland, Wash., The Seattle Times reports. The police report was released detailing the incident. A man placed a call to 911, stating that a female at the residence was “hitting people”, could not be stopped and wouldn’t leave.

When officers arrived, they encountered Solo, who appeared intoxicated. There were visible injuries on Solo’s sister and a 17-year-old nephew. Officers determined Solo was the primary instigator, arresting her on two counts of domestic violence and took her to the King County detention center.

A mandatory court appearance will be held on Monday, June 23.

Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray said there was a large party at her house at the time of the incident. “There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation,” Murray said.

Solo is the goalkeeper for both The Seattle Reign FC and the United States Women’s National Soccer Team. She has also played on two gold-medal winning Olympics teams. The Reign is undefeated this season, playing Western NY Flash on Sunday. The national team recently beat France 1-0 in an exhibition match in Tampa, Fla.

She is married to former NFL player Jerramy Stevens. In November 2012, Stevens allegedly assaulted Solo, his girlfriend at the time. Police had to use a stun gun to break up the altercation. The couple celebrated the occasion by getting married two hours later.

The Seattle Reign released a statement following the arrest: “We are aware of the situation regarding Hope Solo and are currently gathering information. We have no further comment at this time.”

As did U.S. Women’s Soccer: “We are aware of the situation. At this point, we don’t have any further comments.”
