Former NFL player Jerramy Stevens found himself in trouble with the law again this week, this time because of an accusation that he assaulted his fiancee, soccer star Hope Solo.

But after Stevens was arrested he had a brief court appearance at which a judge said there was insufficient evidence to charge Stevens with assaulting Solo, and Stevens was released. Solo was in court but did not speak.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that Stevens was arrested on Monday for fourth-degree assault. Court documents in the case show that police responded to a call about a domestic disturbance that included Stevens, Solo and Solo’s younger brother, Marcus. Few details in the incident have been made available about what exactly Stevens did that led to his arrest.

According to Chris Daniels of KING-TV, the police report in the incident says Stevens and Solo were set to get married today, but they got into an argument yesterday over whether they would live in Florida or Washington State.

Stevens has a long history of legal issues, with arrests for sexual assault, battery, failing a drug test while on probation and drunk driving, among other issues. A first-round draft pick of the Seahawks in 2002, Stevens played five seasons in Seattle and four in Tampa Bay.
