Chris Soules Turns The Tables On Law Enforcement After Hit-And-Run Arrest!
The former 'Bachelor' star was charged with a felony after his deadly car crash.
Chris Soules is not going down without a fight as he gears up for his upcoming hit-and-run case. According to RadarOnline.com, the former Bachelor’s attorneys have filed court documents warning the authorities not to delete ANY communications about his arrest as they prepare for trial.
The documents, obtained by Radar, state that the law enforcement agencies are obligated to preserve evidence and requested the “Halting [of] any process that destroys data, including but not limited to data destruction procedures (manual or automatic) and backup cycling.”
Chris’ newly hired legal team also want “any and all emails exchanged between law enforcement (including but not limited to the Buchanan County Attorney’s Office and the Iowa State Patrol) and the Buchanan County Attorney’s Office relating to Chris Soules, the accident in which he was involved on or about April 25, 2017, or both.”
The reality star’s lawyers also requested all emails, text messages, social media posts, and press releases from the three law enforcement agencies dealing with Chris’ case.
As OK! readers know, Chris was arrested last week after allegedly slamming his pickup truck into the back of a tractor-trailer, killing the driver, before fleeing the scene.
Chris was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal car accident that left one individual dead, which could send him to prison for up to five years.
Chris’ lawyers claim that his 911 call disproves assumptions that the crash was a hit-and-run, and that Chris did, in fact, remain at the scene of the accident. They also released a statement asking the public not to “prejudge this case based on media coverage.”
“Soules’ attorneys are exploring the possibility of a gag order to prevent further misinformation from prejudicing Soules’ right to a fair trial,” they announced.
The 35-year-old was originally scheduled to go to court on May 2, but the State of Iowa requested that it be pushed back.
