Abby Wambach takes full responsibility for her ‘DUII’ actions

After being arrested and booked on a DUII charge late Saturday night, former U.S. Women’s National Team star Abby Wambach has taken full responsibility for her actions.

Portland police confirmed that Wambach was pulled over in her 2014 Range Rover at around 11:05 p.m. last Saturday after she failed to stop at a red light at Southwest 13th Avenue and Taylor Street in the downtown area of the city.

The 35-year-old former soccer star also failed sobriety tests. She was booked into Multnomah County Jail on a DUII (Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants) charge and was released after processing.

She took full responsibility for her actions, and promised that she would make sure that her “horrible mistake” is never repeated.

On her Facebook page, she wrote, “I have let myself and others down. I take full responsibility for my actions. This is all on me. I promise 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.”

During her career, Wambach represented the U.S. Women’s National Team in four World Cups, and led the U.S. to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup title. In 2012, she was named FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year. She also won two Olympic gold medals in 2004 and 2012. She retired from professional soccer in October last year.
