According to the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office, Soules, 35, has been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal car accident that left one individual dead. Soules was not charged with driving under the influence, though authorities did later tell people there were alcohol containers in Soules’ car.
Additionally, according to a video of Soules in court, the reality star was allegedly unwilling to cooperate with police, forcing them to procure a warrant to secure his cooperation with the investigation.
Hours after his arrest, the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office says Soules was released after he posted his $10,000 bond for bail.
Authorities have not released further information on the accident. According to KWWL.com, a pickup truck and a tractor were involved in the crash, with both vehicles going southbound. Officers say the truck collided into the rear of the tractor, sending both vehicles into roadside ditches. The victim was Kenneth Mosher, 66, of Aurora.
TMZ reports that Soules, who is from Arlington, Iowa, was driving the pickup truck. The driver of the tractor reportedly was taken in an ambulance to the hospital, where he died.
