Former U.S. women's national soccer team captain Abby Wambach was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants in Portland, Oregon, on April 3.

KGW News reported she was booked in Multnomah County Jail. KATU News offered a look at her mugshot:

Wambach released a statement on her Facebook account following the arrest:

On Saturday, the Washington Post provided more comments from Wambach:

Wambach has since pleaded not guilty to the charge, per TMZ Sports, which noted she is due in court at the end of the month. The 35-year-old tweeted to explain that the plea was "standard procedure" and that she is "still owning this:"

Wambach retired from professional soccer in October 2015. She has the fifth-most caps in USWNT history (255) and is the team's all-time leading scorer (184), surpassing Mia Hamm's total of 158 in 2013.

Portland police released Wambach on her own recognizance. No additional details have been made available on her arrest at this time; however, Matt Molloy of 13 WHAM noted that in Wambach's motion for release from her arraignment, the soccer star revealed she tried cocaine and marijuana 10 years ago as a member of the USWNT.

A DUII charge in the state of Oregon is a misdemeanor that carries a two-day minimum jail sentence for a conviction. Wambach could face up to a year in jail. She also faces a one-year license suspension and a fine of up to $2,000.
