USA Men’s Soccer Players Make Jokes About Abby Wambach’s DUI

Abby Wambach

Former women’s national team soccer player Abby Wambach was arrested for a DUI in Portland

For some reason, Jozy Altidore and Alejandro Bedoya, who currently play for the men’s national team, thought it was really funny Abby got arrested. 

The 35-year-old was stopped on Saturday night after she reportedly ran a red light in her Range Rover. Abby failed field sobriety tests and was arrested. However, the Portland Police Bureau said Wambach was “polite and cooperative throughout the investigation.”

Abby immediately took responsibility for her actions, posting a statement on Facebook: 

“Last night I was arrested for DUII in Portland after dinner at a friend’s house.

Those that know me, know that I have always demanded excellence from myself. I have let myself and others down.

I take full responsibility for my actions. This is all on me. I promise that I will do whatever it takes to ensure that my horrible mistake is never repeated.

I am so sorry to my family, friends, fans and those that look to follow a better example.

– Abby”

Abby retired in December after 15 years with the national team. She’s the leading scorer in international soccer with 184 career goals.
