U.S. women's national team goalie Hope Solo spoke to Good Morning America's Robin Roberts in her first interview since her suspension from the team.
"Well, clearly, I wasn’t thinking. I mean, it was a horrible choice," Solo told Roberts. "I think I just wasn’t in a good place, emotionally, to even make good decisions. I mean, it’s not an excuse but I just, it was stupid. Should've called a taxi."
Solo was reinstated from her 30-day suspension on Saturday.
Roberts also asked Solo about U.S. Soccer's decision not to suspend her when she was charged with two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault for allegedly attacking her half-sister and nephew at a family gathering.
"All of us, in my opinion, have a fundamental right to be considered innocent until proven guilty," Solo said. "I know U.S. Soccer took a lot of heat, but I am very grateful that they let due process play itself out. Those eight months were some of the worst months of my entire life."
The charges were dropped in January.
