Former 'Bachelor' Chris Soules Arrested -- This Doesn't Sound Good

Chris Soules

This week is definitely off to a rough start for a certain former Bachelor. According to TMZ, Chris Soules was arrested for allegedly fleeing a deadly car crash where he was at fault, and the details surrounding the accident are incredibly scary. 


As TMZ reported, the accident happened Monday night around 8:20 p.m. when the Chevy truck Chris was driving rear-ended a John Deere tractor. Both vehicles went into a ditch, and the driver of the tractor was transported to a hospital, where he later died. 

The 35-year-old former Bachelor star was arrested and "booked on the charge of leaving the scene with a death," per TMZ.

Court documents the site obtained during Chris's arraignment on Tuesday morning revealed that police said he had alcoholic beverage containers in his possession, although he wasn't charged with a DUI at the time. He's currently being held on a $10,000 bond, and needless to say, none of this sounds good for the former Prince Farming at all.
