“That’s still under investigation,” Sheriff Wolfgram said of if the driver has been identified.

Sheriff Wolfgram confirmed Soules, 35, is wearing an ankle bracelet as part of his “pretrial release.”

Us Weekly was the first to report on the ankle monitor, as a source claimed, "Chris has a location-monitoring device on his leg and had to surrender his passport. Chris hasn't left his house yet. His family has been by his side."

He was released the next day on a $10,000 cash bond.
