Soules -- who appeared on season 19 of The Bachelor in 2015 and was also a contestant on Dancing With the Stars -- was arrested at 1:16 a.m. on Tuesday morning at his residence and spent the night behind bars. He was released from jail on $10,000 bail, which was posted by his mother, Linda, a spokesperson for the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to ET on Tuesday afternoon.
Police also noted that Soules must check in with a probation officer regarding his ankle bracelet monitor, and had to turn in his passport, as he was scheduled to film something out of the country that was Bachelor related.
Soules' rep, Stan Rosenfield, also released a statement to ET following his release from jail. "Chris Soules was involved in an accident on Monday evening, April 24, in a rural part of Iowa near his home," reads the statement. "He was devastated to learn that Kenneth Mosher, the other person in the accident, passed away. His thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Mosher's family.”
ET can confirm that Soules has had at least 14 other run-ins with the law in Iowa, dating back to 1998, according to state court records. The majority of the offenses are vehicle-related including speeding and running stop signs. He also pleaded guilty in 2006 to operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
