Gold medal-winning soccer star Hope Solo insists ... her new husband Jerramy Stevens has never laid a hand on her -- despite his assault arrest two weeks ago, following an alleged altercation between the couple.
There was lots of speculation that Stevens -- a former NFL tight end -- had attacked Solo, but she just released a statement, saying, "My beautiful husband & i happy as can be! [sic] Let me set the record straight!!! Jerramy has NEVER treated me poorly! The truth always prevails!”
Jerramy Stevens was arrested following the November 12th incident in Washington, when cops say they noticed blood on Hope's elbow.
Jerramy was released shortly after when a judge decided there wasn't enough evidence to charge him.
Former NFL star Jerramy Stevens was arrested for assault early Monday morning following an incident involving his girlfriend Hope Solo ... this according to multiple reports.
Hope was spotted inside a Seattle courtroom this afternoon, where Stevens was facing a 4th degree assault charge stemming from an incident at a home in Kirkland, WA.
According to Chris Daniels at KING-TV, cops say Solo and Stevens were involved in an altercation around 3:45 AM on Monday ... after arguing about where they will live after they get married -- Florida or Washington.
According to Daniels, cops found Solo with a small amount of blood on her elbow ... but she wasn't very cooperative with police.

The two were partners on "DWTS" in 2011.
Sources close to Maksim tell us ... he has no idea why Solo would publish such a false and defamatory statement and doesn't know why she would have such ill will towards him ... especially because they've had dinner several times since the show ended.
