Retired U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach said Tuesday that she would eventually provide the “truth” behind her drunk driving arrest.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist and World Cup champion was arrested early Sunday morning in Portland and was charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants. Her lawyer entered a plea of not guilty on her behalf Tuesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court, according to USA Today.

Wambach did not comment on the specifics of the case, she told reporters after giving a speech at the University of Kentucky, saying she would open about the details later.

“I will at some point completely be transparent and the truth will come out, so trust me on that,” she said. “I hope I’m good for my word on that.”
