We saw this news break on Twitter this afternoon, and in the span of 12 minutes, we went from indicting Jerramy Stevens for assaulting everyone's favorite women's soccer star to just being confused, a little shellshocked, and creeped out by it all.
It began with reports out of Washington state that Jerramy Stevens was arrested for domestic violence, with Hope Solo listed as the involved party. Chris Daniels, a reporter in Washington, tweeted the photo below, of Jerramy Stevens in an orange jumpsuit.

As Daniels elaborated in the coming minutes, Solo is listed as Stevens' fiancée in court documents, and the alleged incident happened at 3:45 a.m. in the couple's Kirkland, Washington home. But then, 12 minutes after the first tweet, this:
BREAKING: Judge does NOT find probably cause that Stevens assaulted Solo— Chris Daniels (@ChrisDaniels5) November 13, 2012
So that's what we know. The timing couldn't be more surreal, especially after we just spent the morning coming to terms with news that Solo and Stevens are dating and possibly getting married. Mind you, this is that Jerramy Stevens, and now we're all just a bit more confused than we were when we woke up this morning.
For instance: WHAT?
BREAKING: Police report says Marcus Solo (Hope's brother) said there was altercation in house with unknown person, and involved a stun gun.— Chris Daniels (@ChrisDaniels5) November 13, 2012
You can read the whole timeline from a Seattle P-I reporter here. It won't make much sense, but if you were told something involved a stun gun, an argument between someone and family members, and a late night call to Jerramy Stevens' house, you wouldn't be expecting "sense" in the first place.
