THE BACHELOR Chris Soules arrested for fatal hit and run


Former Bachelor Chris Soules appeared in court this morning following an alleged hit and run that has left one person dead.

According to KWWL out of Waterloo, Iowa, the Iowa State Patrol says that Soules was driving a truck that rear ended a John Deere tractor last night. The tractor and the truck both went into the ditch and the person operating the tractor died.

The State Patrol added that Soules ran off on foot, leaving his truck behind.


TMZ has obtained “documents in which police say” Soules was in possession of alcoholic beverage containers at the time of the crash. Soules was apprehended after witnesses ID’d him and called police.

KWWL further reports that Soules was arrested in 2006 and convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

His bail was set at $10,000 this morning. Soules, himself a farmer from Iowa, was the featured “Bachelor” on the 19th season of the hit ABC show. He also competed on Dancing with the Stars.
