TORRANCE, Calif. — Former Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens has been freed from jail in Los Angeles County after serving two days of a 30-day sentence for drunken driving.
Jail records show that Stevens, also a former UW Husky, was booked Friday morning and released Sunday afternoon. He still must complete a two-year alcohol program and four years of probation.
Stevens was granted early release and the two days he served satisfies his original 30-day sentence, a Los Angeles County jail official said Sunday. She said she couldn’t provide information on why Stevens was released early, but noted “he’ll be back if he drinks and drives again.”
Stevens, who’s married to soccer star Hope Solo, was arrested in Manhattan Beach, California, in January while driving a U.S. women’s soccer team van at night with the lights off.
