Soules’ Attorneys Ask Judge to Dismiss Charge

INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (AP) – Defense attorneys are asking a judge to dismiss a charge against reality TV star Chris Soules for leaving the scene of a fatal accident in Buchanan County.

Soules starred on the television show “The Bachelor” two years ago. The Arlington farmer is accused of driving a truck that hit a farm tractor near his hometown of Aurora in April that killed the tractor’s driver, Kenneth Moser of Aurora.

Soules was in a Buchanan County courtroom on Thursday when his attorneys said they would formally ask for the charge to be dismissed at a hearing next month.
