By Michelle Danzig

Hope Solo’s husband and former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens, 33,  was arrested for violating probation on Wednesday, according to The arrest is the result of domestic abuse charges earlier this month. Stevens allegedly assaulted Solo, 31, during an altercation on November 12. Oddly enough, Stevens and the two-time women’s soccer gold medalist were married the very next day. After being released and the charged being dropped, a warrant was issued for his arrest for violating probation from a marijuana possession arrest back in October of 2010. Solo spoke out about the incident for the first time on Tuesday saying, “I’m happy. I’m happily married. We never stand for domestic violence. I’ve never been hit in my life. It’s unfortunate, and that’s what the media can do.” Stevens is currently in jail without a set bond.

How do you deal if your partner has a run-in with the law?

Cupid’s Advice:

Whether is be a past or present incident, a run-in with the law is never pretty. It can happen to anyone from a minor traffic violation to a felony. There are plenty of ways to handle the situation whether it was a prior offense or a current issue. Here are some tips to dealing with a law-breaking partner:

1. Do not get arrested too: if your significant other is having a run-in with the law, and you are present, be calm. Do not interfere in any way. Politely ask the officer where your partner is being taken and for any other information you may need to know about the arrest.

2. Don’t judge them for past offenses: Not everyone who goes to jail or gets arrested is a bad person. Sometimes people make mistakes and unfortunately, jail is sometimes a consequence. Ask them to be open and honest about the situation. This way, you are enlightened about any topics that might concern you and your future (i.e.probation).

3. Try to avoid any future occurrences: As was mentioned earlier, it isn’t difficult to end up arrested. If you and your significant other have a clean record, why not work together to keep it that way. If either of you finds yourself in risky territory, it doesn’t hurt to say something. Take precautionary measures, for example, when drinking. If your partner has had too much to drink, do not let him/her drive.
