He was driving a pickup truck as he heads south to his farm when he swiped into the "John Deer" tractor of Mosher around 8 PM that night. Cops finally arrested Chris at his home a few hours later, and he was released after posting a $10,000 bond. He is accused of not immediately stopping his vehicle at the scene and failing to return and remain at the scene of the crash, according to a police report. He has been charged with leaving the scene of a deadly crash, a Class D felony in Iowa. While it's been reported that Chris checked the victim's pulse and called 911, he later fled the scene by foot and was promptly arrested about five hours later at his home in Arlington, IA, in the early hours of the morning on Tuesday, April 25. The female dispatcher asked about the condition of the man and Soules told her that he was unconscious in the ditch.
"Soules' 911 call, released yesterday, proved that the initial knee-jerk coverage of this accident was incorrect". "It doesn't appear the driver of the tractor is breathing at this time", dispatchers can be heard saying about a minute later.
Soules left the crash site after emergency responders arrived, but before deputies with the Buchanan County Sheriff's Office were on the scene, according to authorities. Soules is due back in court the next day.
Soules' three sisters signed him up to be a suitor on "The Bachelorette" in 2014.

Apple is expected to launch a redesigned iPhone this fall, with a screen that covers almost the entire front of the device. As Bloomberg had reported, this leaked model could be one of many iPhone 8 prototypes that Apple will choose from.
Wolfgram said that Soules refused to answer his door for officers, telling them to contact his attorney. His appearance drew attention to farming life and some of the struggles facing rural Iowa. A source told People that someone picked up the former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant. He was taken after the crash by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, where he was pronounced dead.
Police have Chris Soules' phone and are looking into whether or not he was texting, talking on the phone or posting to social media at the time of his auto crash, according to TMZ. They have already filed a demand asking law enforcement to preserve possible evidence and anticipate filing additional motions next week.
Police have not revealed the official charges pending against Soules, but his history of fleeing the scene will not work in his favor. He was devastated to learn that Kenneth Mosher, the other person in the accident, passed away.
As an Iowa farmer, Mosher had one major priority in his life - his family. He must wear an ankle-bracelet monitor and has turned in his passport. Police discovered alcohol in the truck, which Soules left at the scene of the accident.
