The healthiest relationship in America hit some rough waters early Monday morning when Hope Solo's husband, Jerramy Stevens, was pulled over, arrested and booked on a DUI charge in Los Angeles.

According to, which broke the story, the U.S. soccer star made things pretty difficult on the cops. As her husband was being examined and put under arrest, Solo was reportedly "acting belligerent" and pulled out her cell phone to record the the interaction.

A source also told TMZ that Solo was almost in danger of being arrested herself for disorderly conduct. Meanwhile, Solo and Stevens tried to get out of the arrest by using their celebrity.

"Don't you know who we are?" they reportedly asked the police.

The police say they stopped Stevens, who played tight end for nine seasons in the NFL, because the car didn't have its headlights on at 1:49 a.m.

This is far from the first time the Solo-Stevens combo has made headlines for unsavory reasons. In fact, Solo was just relieved of a domestic violence case in which she reportedly struck her young nephew and her sister in a family dispute.

Stevens was also arrested in 2012 for assault against Solo herself. That case, however, was dropped due to a lack of evidence.

Stevens was convicted of a drunk-driving charge in 2007 in Arizona. He received a 30-day jail sentence, and the NFL suspended him for one game.

All this to say, this latest arrest might be merely one chapter of an as-yet-unfinished story.

Best, Worst NFL Team Arrest Rates



Adrian Peterson is the poster-child, but the Vikings have a genuinely systemic problem: Their 32 arrests in the past 10 years are tied for the league lead. As fans grow impatient with illegal activity among players, franchises like Minnesota's may feel the heat for their role.



Tied with the Vikings is the Denver Broncos, which has had as many arrests since 2005 as the NFL has teams. Despite the well-known locker room presences of Tim Tebow and then Peyton Manning, Broncos players have a knack for finding trouble.



With their recent streak of playoff appearances, you can't quite call them the Bungles. But that string of successes has come amid plenty of off-field problems: Cincinnati's NFL team has had 31 arrests since 2005.



Pacman Jones may be one of the team's most notorious criminal problems, but he's far from alone. In the past 10 years, a Titans player has been arrested 30 times.



It's fitting that a franchise that flies a pirate flag at games would be on the lesser end of the player-arrest spectrum. The Bucs have struggled with off-field problems in the last decade, tallying 26 arrests.



Carolina is one of three teams with only nine arrests in 10 years. Only five of the NFL's 32 teams have averaged fewer than one arrest per year.



The Cowboys can't seem to put it all together and make a run at the Super Bowl, but their off-field distractions aren't a major detractor. The franchise has just nine arrests to its name since 2005.



Maybe it's the steady leadership of coach Bill Belichick, who has always had a no-nonsense approach to being a team leader. If so, his system is working: the Patriots have the third-best mark in the league with only nine arrests in the past decade.



On the downside, rookie head coach Bill O'Brien inherited a team that went 2-14 last season. On the bright side, the locker room hasn't been crawling with bad influences. Houston has had only eight arrests in the past 10 years, the second-best mark in the NFL.



That's right: The least criminally offensive NFL team can be found in Arizona. The Cardinals franchise can claim just seven arrests in the past 10 years.
