It's only been a week since Reign and US keeper Hope Solo had domestic violence charges against her dropped by a Kirkland judge. But it seems she can't stay out of trouble. US Soccer has announced that they've suspended Solo from activity with the national team for 30 days. That includes the current World Cup warmup camp as well as two friendlies, against France and England in February.

The official release from the federation declined to cite a specific reason. It likely has something to do with the arrest of her husband — ex-Seahawk Jerramy Stevens — for a DUI this week in Manhattan Beach, during which Solo — who was a passenger in the car — "acted belligerent" according to TMZ, who broke the story of the DUI.

After the 30 days, Solo is eligible to return to national team activity, pending approval by the federation and team head coach Jill Ellis.

Update: According to an update on the Reign Facebook, the team currently has no plans to take any action of their own. Here's the full post:
