Chris Soules, who starred in Season 19 of The Bachelor after losing on Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette, was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with leaving the scene of a deadly crash.
In an incident that took place about 15 miles from Soules’ farm in Iowa, Soules was allegedly driving a Chevy pickup when he rear-ended a John Deere tractor around 8pm on Monday evening. Both the truck and the tractor went into a ditch, and then Soules left the truck behind and took off. The driver of the tractor was taken to a local hospital and unfortunately passed away. Soules was arrested around 1am
Bail was set at $10,000 at an arraignment on Tuesday morning and it was revealed in court documents that “alcoholic beverages or containers were at the scene of deadly crash.” While he hasn’t been charged with drunk driving in this case, the documents also pointed out that Soules was convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated in 2006.
A report from local station KWWL tweeted Soules’ mugshot from last night:
