Former Huskies and Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens has reportedly been arrested again, this time for violation of probation, in Florida.

Debbie Carter, spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, says the probation violation is from past possession of marijuana. Police arrested Stevens on Wednesday at his apartment in Tampa.

The Florida Department of Corrections explained that Stevens’ probation for a 2010 arrest for possessing marijuana began on Oct. 23, 2012.

Stevens was arrested just two weeks ago at a pre-wedding party in Kirkland. Officers responding to the house party said they had probable cause to arrest Stevens because Hope Solo, Stevens’ then-fiance, had a cut on her elbow and the two had been arguing.

Solo, an Olympic soccer star, attended Stevens’ court hearing the following day before the pair was married later that evening.

Charges for the Nov. 12, 2012 arrest were dismissed.

While preparing for an exhibition soccer match in Portland on Tuesday, Solo told reporters she is happy and that she’s “never been hit.”

On Wednesday afternoon, Solo wrote on Twitter:

“I feel bad for all the ignorance in the world. People are so quick to judge. The media spins stories in such dramatic fashion. I will continue to show love, and never make judgements. I am blessed w True Love & the beautiful game of soccer. I wish everybody the same happiness.”

Stevens is no stranger to the courtroom. In 1998, Stevens was arrested for second-degree assault armed with a deadly weapon and fourth-degree assault.

In 2000, Stevens was arrested for the sexual assault of a 19-year-old University of Washington freshman. Prosecutors declined to file rape charges because of insufficient evidence.

In 2001, Stevens pleaded guilty to hit-and-run and causing property damage to a building and was sentenced to 240 hours of community service.

In 2003, Medina Police stopped him for reckless driving and driving while intoxicated. He was fined $1,000 and was sentenced to two days in jail.

He has been arrested multiple times for marijuana possession, including in 2010.

More recently, in March of 2011, Stevens was arrested and charged with felony battery for punching two bouncers in a Tampa, Florida bar.
