Former “Bachelor” Chris Soules Arrested After Deadly Accident

Star of The Bachelor season 19, Chris Soules, was charged on Tuesday morning with leaving the scene of a deadly crash in Iowa on Monday evening.

According to The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office, Soules was driving a Chevy pickup that rear-ended a John Deere tractor around 8 p.m. on Monday evening. The incident took place about 15 miles from Soules’ farm, and after both the tractor and the truck went into the ditch, the former Dancing With the Stars contestant took off. The person driving the tractor was killed; Soules received medical attention as well, after he was arrested around 1 a.m.

Soules was arraigned on Tuesday morning with a bail of $10,000 set. Court documents say “alcoholic beverages or containers were at the scene of deadly crash” and also noted that Soules was convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated in 2006, although he has not been charged (yet) with drunk driving in this incident.

A report from local station KWWL tweeted Soules’ mugshot from last night:

We’ll keep you posted as more details come out. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family.
