Bachelor Star Chris Soules has posted his bail following his arrest after he hit a truck and then fled the scene. Reports suggest that the former reality star who also appeared in Dancing With the Star was arrested from the house of one his friends. A mug shot of the ‘farmer’ was later going viral on social media.
The former reality star who apparently appeared on the Season 19 of The Bachelor was brought to the a Buchanan County courtroom Tuesday dressed in a lime-green prison outfit, bright orange sandals, and gray socks.
A TMZ report said that Chris Soules’ voice was so low that the judge had asked him to speak louder. “Soules was in Buchanan County Court Tuesday morning — the judge had to instruct him to speak louder, so the court recorder could actually hear him. KWWL was in court for the hearing…Soules was arrested for driving into the back of a John Deere tractor on the road Monday evening. The tractor flipped over, killing 66-year-old Kenny Mosher … a local farmer”.
It was later reported that the former reality star was driving a Chevrolet pickup truck when he allegedly rear-ended a John Deere tractor around. A report by Iowa said that the incident took place at around 8:20 p.m. Monday, north of the town of Aurora. The driver of the tractor, who was described in The Des Moines Register story as an “older man,” was rushed to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, where he was pronounced dead. His name has not been released.
