    Domestic violence charges against Hope Solo dropped

    KIRKLAND, Washington — Prosecutors in Washington state have dropped domestic violence charges against former US national team star goalkeeper Hope Solo.

    Solo was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault in 2014 after police said she assaulted two family members at a home in Kirkland, east of Seattle. The case was delayed by appeals.

    KING-TV reports that city prosecutors dropped the charges Wednesday, saying the witnesses in the case wanted to move on with their lives and did not want to participate in a trial.
