U.S women's soccer star Abby Wambach was arrested in Portland, Oregon early Sunday morning on a DUI charge. Wambach was pulled over after she failed to stop at a red light. After failing a field sobriety test, Wambach was taken to Portland's Central Precinct where she then failed a breath test.

She was released on her own recognizance later that morning after being charged with misdemeanor DUII (driving under the influence of intoxicants).

Wambach expressed her remorse for her actions via Facebook Sunday afternoon:

"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"

Wambach retired from the world stage in October after helping the U.S. claim the 2015 women's World Cup; the first for the U.S. since 1999.
