Community of Arlington reacts to Chris Soules' arrest

The former star of both The Bachelorette on Andi's season and as the 19th The Bachelor, Iowa native Chris Soules was arrested last night for leaving the scene of a deadly auto crash that he was involved in.

The crash sent the tractor into a ditch on one side of the road and Soules' truck into a ditch on the other side, the patrol said.

CBS2 reports that Mosher was a 66-year-old farmer from Aurora, Iowa.

Soules was allegedly in possession of alcoholic beverages or containers at the time of the accident, though it is unclear if he was intoxicated at the time.

Soules had his first court appearance Tuesday morning at the Buchanan County Courthouse.

Sgt. Bright says after Soules was taken into custody he was transported to a local hospital to be treated for injuries before being booked into the Buchanan County Jail.

Update, 12:50 p.m.: Soules has a history of "alcohol-related driving convictions", KWWL reports. Both the truck and the tractor ended up in the ditch.

Police audio of the incident obtained by the Des Moines Register shows that a deputy told a dispatcher Soules "took off" in a red truck while Mosher was unconscious in his vehicle. According to TMZ, witnesses identified him for authorities and the Buchanan County Sheriff's Office arrested him about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Some in Arlington, where Soules is from, say they're disappointed in Chris Soules' behavior.

Soules' next court date is scheduled for May 2.

The fertility nurse, who won Soules' season of "The Bachelor" and was briefly engaged to the farmer in 2015, responded to the news of her famous ex's arrest. It confirmed that a person was killed, but said it wouldn't release further information "pending the investigation and notification of family". He is now in court awaiting arraignment and is being held on a $10,000 cash bond. Unfortunately for those fans, his fiancé, Whitney Bischoff, broke off the engagement that same year and it looks like Soules has fallen into series of bad choices.
