    Not his First Brush w/LE

    Chris Soules Arrested After Fatal Crash: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    Published 9:53 am EDT, April 25, 2017 Updated 10:05 am EDT, April 25, 2017

    .......

    5. It Was Not Soules’ First Brush With the Law

    Chris Soules’ arrest history was reported on entertainment sites after he first joined Andi Dorfman’s season of the Bachelorette and then later became the Bachelor. Viewers fell in love with his homespun, friendly family and his small-town lifestyle on a farm in Iowa. However, he had an arrest history already.

    According to RadarOnline, “Soules’ most serious arrest happened in 2006, when he was found guilty of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and fined more than $500.”

    HollywoodLife reported at that time: “Chris has also been fined for speeding multiple times, and in 2001, when he was 19 years old, he was found guilty of possession of alcohol under age twice. That same year, he was again hit with similar charges, with an added charge of driving with an open container. Then in 2002 he was charged for fighting on a Valentine’s Day incident, and a month later he was found guilty of fleeing the scene of an accident.”

    Wow! This is pretty serious. IF he was drinking, he's really going to be in trouble. Yikes.

    Still kind of shocked to wake up this morning and see this. Of all the Bachelors I've watched, I really liked him. So sad he didn't learn his lesson and put his life and the life of another on the line.

    He really seemed to have a good thing going lately. Tragic.....

    I watched his season, too. He did seem to be a quality guy. I have only watched a few of those guys, and I never really keep up after, but he seemed to have his life together, well connected with his family, iirc, he's a farmer, etc. It would be sad to see him throw it all away. I feel like it's possible he was not sober, hit the tractor, and panicked. Damn.

    .................

    UPDATE: The Iowa State Patrol says a pickup truck and tractor were involved in the crash, with both vehicles going southbound. Officers say the truck ran into the back of the tractor, sending both vehicles into roadside ditches.

    Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me at all. After the Bachelor, and DWTS, seemed all he wanted was more fame and reality tv. Party time. I too agree he was most probably drinking when this happened. Sad.

    If this is correct, this would be his 2nd leaving the scene of an accident arrest. I don't know where he was found, but is it possible that he went for help?
    Probably not, imagine he had a cell phone with him. If he had been drinking, he may have left to avoid dui charges.
    I am also curious about the John Deere tractor. I will research the model, but if it was just a big old farming tractor on the road at night, pulling something, perhaps the tractor's lights weren't on or were dim. Can John Deere tractors be driven on the road?
    I am very, very sorry for the deceased man and his family.

    I'm wondering about the circumstances too. A $10,000.00 Bail is really not that high of an amount. It leads me to believe there is more to the story than we currently are aware.
