A Kirkland judge dropped the domestic violence assault case against former Husky Jerramy Stevens on Tuesday due to insufficient evidence.

Kirkland police arrested Stevens on Monday for allegedly assaulting and injuring former Husky and Olympic gold medalist Hope Solo during a house party altercation between eight people. Solo, who was at the Kirkland Municipal Court Tuesday afternoon, is believed to be Steven’s fiance, but his attorney wouldn’t confirm.

“The issue here is whether the crime was committed and the answer is ‘no,’” said Steven’s lawyer, Todd Maybrown. “No crime was committed, she was not assaulted (by him).”

Kirkland police officers were dispatched to a disturbance call in the 6400 block of N.E. 138th Place at 3:45 a.m. on Monday.

The call involved a physical altercation between eight people during a house party and the use of a stun gun.

Upon arrival, officers contacted several people at the residence who appeared to be intoxicated and were uncooperative as officers began their investigation.

Officers found a 31-year-old female suffering from a laceration to the elbow, a 32-year-old female suffering from a hip injury, and a 34-year-old male suffering from multiple bumps, scrapes and contusions. Kirkland Fire Department personnel treated the injuries.

Based on information provided by those involved and upon the officers’ observations of the scene and visible evidence present, officers arrested Stevens on investigation of fourth-degree domestic violence assault on the female resident who suffered a laceration to her elbow, believed to be Solo. The victim was reported to be the fiancée of Stevens, according to Kirkland police. The investigation was forwarded to Kirkland’s Family Violence Unit Detective for further investigation.

The female with the hip injury and the male with multiple scrapes and bruises indicated they had been assaulted by a male who had come to the party and fled prior to police arrival. They could only provide a vague description of this subject and stated they did not know him.

Stevens has a history of prior convictions.

“Perhaps he doesn’t get a fair shake because people look at that past history, whatever it is, and reach conclusions that they shouldn’t reach,” said Maybrown.

Stevens will be released from the Kirkland jail at some point Tuesday.
