Hope Solo, a former professional soccer player and member of the United States National Team, requested that her induction into the Hall of Fame be postponed because she will voluntarily enter a programme to help her overcome her alcoholism.
"I have politely requested that my Hall of Fame induction ceremony be postponed to 2023," Solo stated in a statement posted to social media on Friday.
"To address my alcoholism, I will willingly enrol in an in-patient alcohol treatment programme. My energies and focus are currently entirely focused on my health, healing, and taking care of my family. I'd like to express my gratitude to the Hall of Fame for their support and understanding of my decision "Solo said.
According to the police report, Solo allegedly refused to assist in a field sobriety test, prompting the issuance of a search order to gather blood samples prior to her detention. A court date has been set for June 28.
The Dancing With the Stars alum, who is married to Jerramy Stevens and has twins, subsequently broke her silence on Instagram.

"Our children are strong, clever, joyful, and lively, and we strive to provide them with the greatest life possible every day." In due time, we will be able to provide the information."
Hope Solo, a retired soccer player, said on Friday that she is seeking alcohol treatment after being arrested last month on accusations of driving while intoxicated and misdemeanour child abuse.
In a statement posted to her social media accounts, the two-time Olympic gold medalist and former goalkeeper for the United States women's national team said the decision prompted her to request that her induction into the National Soccer Hall of Fame, which is set to take place next month, be postponed until 2023.
According To Uswhispers "To address my drinking issues, I will willingly attend an in-patient alcohol treatment programme," Solo said. "Right now, all of my energies and focus are focused on my health, healing, and caring for my family."
