TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — 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 was booked on Friday morning and released Sunday afternoon. He still must complete a two-year alcohol program and four years of probation.

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.

Authorities said his blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit, and he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor drunken driving.

Solo was Stevens' passenger. She was suspended from the national team for 30 days for what were described as health-related issues.
