Former U.S. women’s international goalkeeper Hope Solo is in trouble with the law again.

Solo was arrested on Thursday after she was driving under the influence and resisting arrest. She also was booked for misdemeanor child abuse as her two children were in the car.

She was taken into custody in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The 40-year-old Solo was found passed out behind the steering wheel of her car in a shopping center parking lot with her two-year-old twins inside.

Her lawyer Rich Nichols released a statement stating Solo could not speak on the current charges but that her kids are the most important thing to her.

“Hope can’t speak about this situation, but she wants everyone to know that her kids are her life, that she was released immediately and is now home with her family, that the story is more sympathetic than the initial charges suggest, and that she looks forward to her opportunity to defend these charges,” Nichols said in a statement.

Solo is married to Jerramy Stevens, who played for the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL.

In 2014, Solo was arrested on domestic assault charges connected to a fight with her half-sister and nephew. A year later, she was suspended from the USWNT for 30 days after Stevens was arrested and charged with driving a U.S. Soccer team van under the influence. Solo was in the van during Stevens’s arrest.

U.S. Soccer terminated her contract when she called Sweden “cowards” after the USWNT’s elimination loss at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Solo is to be inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Frisco, Texas on May 14.
