Jerramy Stevens out of jail


Former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens has been released from jail after being taken into custody on a probation violation, according to a published report.

Stevens was released Thursday on his own recognizance by a Hillsborough County judge, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Stevens was arrested Wednesday for a probation violation stemming from a 2010 marijuana possession charge in Tampa while he played for the Buccaneers. Two weeks ago, Stevens was arrested in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, Wash., following what police said was an argument with U.S. women's soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo. A Kirkland Municipal Court judge released Stevens after a court appearance, saying there was no evidence connecting Stevens to any assault on Nov. 12. Stevens and Solo were married the following day.

Solo said Tuesday in Portland, Ore., where the U.S. women's team was preparing for an exhibition match, that she and Stevens are happy.
