Hours after former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens was cleared in a domestic violence case involving U.S. soccer star Hope Solo, the two got married Tuesday night, according to Dave Mahler of KJR Radio in Seattle:

Stevens was arrested early Monday morning for a suspected fourth-degree assault that took place at a house in Kirkland, Wash. Based on a report, it was unclear how Solo was involved, though she did reportedly have blood on her elbow when police arrived at the home.

ProFootballTalk writes that the two had an altercation:

"A police report in the incident said Stevens and Solo had an altercation that started with a dispute over where they would live after they got married, but the day after Stevens was arrested, a judge ruled that there was no evidence to charge Stevens with a crime."

The couple appeared in court on Tuesday morning -- Stevens' 33rd birthday -- when a judge released Stevens. No charges were ever filed. Rumors swirled recently that Solo and Stevens, who has a long criminal history dating back to his high school days, were dating, but it was not reported that they were engaged until Tuesday.
