Chris Soules has gone from designer duds on the Bachelor to a prison jumpsuit. The disgraced reality star, 35, faced his fate this morning in his first court appearance after leaving the scene of a car crash that left one man dead.
The Iowa-based hunk wore bright yellow as he faced the judge in Buchanan County earlier today. He has posted his $10,000 bail, and will soon be released from jail.

As Radar previously reported, Soules was arrested hours after he rear-ended a 66-year-old man’s tractor with his pickup truck near Aurora, prompting both vehicles to tumble into a ditch. The tractor’s driver, Kenny Mosher, was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. Instead of checking in on the victim, Soules immediately fled the scene, authorities say.
According to local news site KWWL , cops later found Soules’ vehicle at a home he was staying in, and spent hours attempting to secure a search warrant to force him out of the house.
Soules, who was arrested for driving under the influence in 2006, was discovered to have alcoholic beverages or containers in his possession, court records indicate.
He will return to court on May 2 for a preliminary hearing.
As Radar reported in 2014, the reality star was previously arrested for leaving the scene of an accident in 2002.
Bachelor fans fell in love with Soules when he starred on the ABC dating show in 2015. Though he proposed to final rose winner Whitney Bischoff, they split just six months later.
