Hope Solo Will Face Domestic Violence Charges From 2014 Incident

The case was initially dismissed by a court in January.

U.S. Women's National Soccer Team goalkeeper Hope Solo will face charges after all from a 2014 incident in which she allegedly beat up her nephew and half-sister, reports ESPNW. The switch is a result of a Friday decision by a Washington appeals court, which reversed an earlier decision to dismiss the case.

Solo had been charged with two counts of domestic violence before the charges were dropped earlier this year. On separate occasions, Solo has denied the assault allegations.

A timetable for this new trial has not been given, according to ESPNW. But the court did issue a statement, in which it said: "The court reverses the decision of the lower court and remands the case to the Kirkland (Washington) Municipal Court."

Hope Solo was part of the U.S. Women's National Team that won the 2015 World Cup in July. She was in goal for Seattle Reign's 1-0 loss to Kansas City in the National Women's Soccer League's championship on Thursday.
