Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street charged with assault

SALT LAKE CITY -- Authorities say Olympic gold medalist skier Picabo Street has been charged with assault and domestic violence stemming from a December altercation with a relative in Utah.

Summit County Sheriff Sgt. Ron Bridge said Wednesday that Street is accused of assaulting a family member but didn't give further details. She was arrested on Dec. 23 after a physical altercation was reported at a house near Park City.

Charging documents don't provide specifics either. Street is charged with three misdemeanor counts of domestic violence in the presence of a child and one misdemeanor count of assault.

A court record of a Dec. 28 hearing shows Street plans to plead not guilty. Street and her attorney didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

She won a gold medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics in women's super-G.
