Abby Wambach pleaded guilty on Tuesday to driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII), and has agreed to enroll in a diversion program available to first-time offenders. The Oregonian reported the story. If Wambach meets the conditions of the diversion program she could have her charge thrown out after a year. She will require a breathalyzer in her car to prove her sobriety before starting it and she is expected to avoid drinking alcohol.
Wambach was arrested the night of April 2 while driving home from a friend’s house through downtown Portland.
In December, Wambach concluded a decorated soccer career that saw her break Mia Hamm’s record for most international goals of all-time. She retired with 184 goals and countless other honors. In July she achieved her long-stated goal of being part of the World Cup winning side.
