Hope Solo couldn’t save this one from getting out.
The dazed looking soccer star was pulled out from her car by cops after being uncooperative during her DWI arrest earlier this year, this according to new police video shows. The footage was captured on a Winston-Salem Police Officer’s body-worn camera on March 31st. The officer was called to a North Carolina Walmart parking lot over reports that a woman had been asleep behind the wheel of a running car with her kids inside.
Watch the incident below:
Video shows when the officer walked up to the GMC Yukon at around 10:20 PM. Hope Solo appeared to be passed out with her head resting on her driver’s seat while her engine was on.
Solo immediately became alert following the officer’s knock on her window. She mumbled, scrolled through her phone and even took a call. She insisted she hadn’t been drinking, and had only stopped to take a nap because she was tired. The officer told her he smelled alcohol coming from her vehicle. She then began arguing with the man and another officer who had arrived on the scene to assist.
The cops asked her to step out of her car repeatedly, but she refused. Her kids, meanwhile, could be heard screaming and crying in the background.
Ultimately, one of the cops grabbed her by the arm and pulled her from the ride. She could be heard later in the video yelling while walking with an officer, “Oh my God, you don’t need to f***ing touch me!”
Solo was charged with driving while impaired, resisting a public officer and misdemeanor child abuse.
In July, she reached a deal with prosecutors to close out the case, pleading guilty to DWI. Following the case’s disposition, she said in a statement,
“I underestimated what a destructive part of my life alcohol had become.”
“I continue to be a student of the greatest school called life and I will continue to learn and grow from these experiences,” she added. “I will continue to gain empathy, knowledge, and stories to share.”
“I consider this a gift to pass it on to others because pain shared is pain lessened.”
Tough look for Hope Solo.
