Abby Wambach pled guilty to DUI last month, but it appears that the incident wasn’t the first auto-related issue for the U.S. Women’s National Team star.

TMZ reported on Monday that Wambach flipped her vehicle in June 2014 before departing the scene without calling local law enforcement. The police were eventually notified by the owner of the property that the car was left on, and police proceeded to locate Wambach at her home roughly one mile away.

Wambach told police that she opted to walk home because she was without her cell phone and had no means to contact anyone regarding the wreck. Wambach was not issued any form of sobriety test, and was never charged with any crime stemming from the incident. Wambach reportedly remained in contact with the homeowner and paid for the damages caused by the accident.

The retired USWNT star, who was hired by ESPN last week, pled guilty to DUI last month and is has been enrolled a drug and alcohol treatment facility.
