Ex-US Soccer star Abby Wambach tells students to learn from her mistakes — VIDEO

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Retired U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach urged University of Arkansas students to learn from her mistakes after her arrest earlier this month on a drunken driving charge.

Wambach made the comments Monday during a speech in Fayetteville, a week after she pleaded guilty in Oregon to driving under the influence of intoxicants. Wambach could have her charges dismissed within a year by enrolling in a diversion program available to first-time offenders.

Fayetteville television station KHOG reports that Wambach says she’s owned up publicly to her mistakes and doesn’t want to “hide behind the veil of … legal representation.”

Wambach is the leading career scorer — male or female — in international soccer with 184 goals. She retired in December after 15 years with the national team.
