Stevens, husband of U.S. soccer goalie Hope Solo, was detained by the Florida Department of Corrections and jailed in Tampa Wednesday for violating the terms of his probation for a 2010 marijuana case, USA Today reported.
Ann Howard, director of communications at the Corrections Department, said Stevens was picked up because of a Nov. 13 domestic violence arrest in Kirkland, Wash., involving Solo -- to whom he was married that day.
A Washington judge released Stevens without charges due to lack of evidence in that incident, but Howard said the arrest triggered a warrant for him in Florida.
"I believe this is improper," Stevens' attorney, Mark O'Brien, told the newspaper. "A judge in Washington -- after he had a full hearing in which the state of Washington called witnesses, including a law enforcement official -- found no probable cause.
"In this particular case, he should not be held without bond -- he shouldn't even have his probation violated."
Stevens, 33, is a free agent after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the 2010 marijuana arrest.
