Chris Soules ‘Smelled Of Alcohol’ After Deadly Hit-And-Run Crash
‘There is no way a sober person could have gotten into this [car] accident.’
Chris Soules’ hit-and-run case just took a major turn!
Multiple insiders revealed to RadarOnline.com that Chris smelled of alcohol and acted arrogantly after the hit-and-run crash that killed Iowa farmer, Kenneth Mosher.
“[Chris] didn’t appear to be visibly stumbling, falling down, drunk or anything like that, but he definitely did smell of alcohol,” an eyewitness at the scene told Radar. “If you smell Wild Turkey [liquor] on someone it is very distinctive.”
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 after calling 911.
“There is no way a sober person could have gotten into this motor vehicle accident,” the insider added, “Especially a sober person that has lived in Iowa all their lives.”
In court papers, obtained by Radar, the State of Iowa accused Chris of purchasing alcohol before the fatal crash. As OK! readers know, empty and partially consumed open alcoholic beverages were also located in his vehicle.
Making matter’s worse, the insider also claimed the Iowa farmer appeared “dismissive, arrogant and callous” about the death, as he seemed “angry” and more concerned about the damage to his vehicle.
“He was just highly irritable very agitated,” the insider confessed. “He just seemed to act like he really wanted to get out of there. And then he left on foot.”
According to the eyewitness, paramedics didn’t try to stop Chris from leaving because he became “aggressive.”
“He threw a big fit and wanted to speak to the magistrate immediately and they put him the drunk tank,” the source said of the tank, which is a small white and blue room with no windows and a stainless steel toilet. “He was arrogant and standoffish. He kept saying, ‘I need to see the magistrate, this needs to be taken care of. I want to talk to my parents. This is a mistake.’ He thought he was above it all.”
And when it comes to his booking, the insider claims the 35-year-old reality star’s behavior only got worse.
He complained, “as if he shouldn’t be going through it,” the source dished. “I don’t know of a normal functioning person with real emotions who is responsible for the death of a longtime member of the community can go to jail and be such a d**k about having to be in jail,” the source continued.
A second insider told Radar that when Chris’ mom, Linda, posted his $10,000 cash bond, he was “discourteous” to the court staffers, even after they helped him sneak out of the courthouse to avoid reporters.
The source also added that Chris’ family ties in the community could help him get out of trouble.
“The important thing to understand is that this is such a small community if your family holds land,” said the source. “If they’ve been here for a long enough time and you make enough money you have the right connections. I wouldn’t be surprised if his parents made a few phone calls.”
The 35-year-old reality star was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal car accident that left one individual dead and is due to appear in court on May 10.
