Chris Soules Makes Frantic 911 Call Before Leaving Dying Victim In Ditch

Weinstein Co. and MPAA settle ratings dispute

Soules, who starred in "The Bachelor" and "Dancing with the Stars", has been released on bond pending trial.

Former Bachelor star Chris Soules was arrested on Monday night in Buchanan County, Iowa for fleeing the scene of a deadly auto crash, reports People.

Prosecutors say Soules was driving a pickup that rear-ended a tractor about 8 p.m. Monday on Slater Avenue north of Aurora. The measure, which would have blocked the release of Soules' call, died in the state Senate after The Associated Press and other critics argued it would harm the public's right-to-know.

"Chris, do you know how to do CPR?" the dispatched asked. While initial reports may have led people to believe Soules fleed immediately after hitting the John Deere tractor, TMZ obtained 911 audio of Soules calling the police and attempting to help Kenneth E. Mosher - the 66-year-old Aurora man identified as the person killed in the Iowa crash - before taking off. Soules replied with a yes. The operator then told Soules that law enforcement and medical were on their way to the scene.

The 35-year-old farmer was arrested Tuesday morning for his alleged involvement in a deadly hit-and-run in Iowa. "Chris Soules was involved in an accident on Monday evening, April 24, in a rural part of Iowa near his home", the statement reads. Late in the call, Soules relays to the dispatcher that other people were administering CPR.

Though it's unclear when, Soules left the scene sometime after the phone call and was arrested several hours later at his house and charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

As for the family and relatives of the victim Kenneth Mosher, one of them have stepped up for Chris Soules and even defended him.

Soules said there was blood coming out of the victim's mouth but he had a pulse. Soules made a social media post Monday, just a couple hours before the crash, showing him working in a farm field.

Soules' next court date is set for Tuesday, May 2 - a day after Mosher's funeral is apparently taking place. "I'm keeping everyone in my thoughts and prayers, especially the victim and his family". Police records say Soules was "in possession of alcoholic beverage containers" when the crash happened, but we don't know whether he had open containers in his vehicle. He was not charged with drunk driving.

Soules has a history of alcohol-related traffic incidents, including a 2006 charge for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
