Abby Wambach Apologizes For DUI Arrest, Vows It Won’t Happen Again


Abby Wambach has taken full responsibility for her DUI arrest.

The retired U.S. soccer star was arrested in Portland, Ore., at 2:20 a.m. local time Sunday and charged with misdemeanor DUI after having dinner at a friend’s house, Wambach said on Facebook. The 35-year-old former forward apologized to her fan later that day and said she would never make the mistake again.

With two Olympic gold medals, four World Cup appearances and a World Cup win in 2015, Wambach is one of the most decorated soccer players in U.S. history. Wambach’s 184 international goals are the most of any player, male or female.
