"I feel a pulse, yeah he's got a pulse", he said.

Soules eventually plead guilty to the crime and a judged hit him with a $155 fine.

As Radar reported, Soules has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident after he collided with a tractor on April 24, killing its driver.

He reportedly called 911 after the crash and checked the victim's pulse before leaving the scene, according to authorities. The tractor driver was taken to a hospital, but he was not able to survive his injuries.

A tape of the 911 call was released this week.

Soules, who starred on ABC's "The Bachelor" two years ago, said the man had been thrown into a ditch, wasn't conscious, and didn't appear to be breathing. After the operator ascertains other people are at the scene, she has Soules ask if any of them knows CPR, adding, "I can talk you through it, if you're near the patient". A person can then be heard in the background of the call counting compressions. "You guys on your way?" We have law enforcement, medical en route to you.

Mayor Young is also a volunteer firefighter who was on scene.

The former Bachelorette contestant has been wearing an ankle monitor at his home since the arrest.

Unfortunately for Soules, even if he's cleared of driving recklessly or under the influence, he might still face criminal charges due to his behavior immediately following the accident.

Soules was released after he posted a $10,000 (£7,790) bail bond.

The firm plans to issue a statement later Thursday, which would be the first word from Soules' defense since the crash Monday night in northern Iowa.

A statement from Soules' publicist earlier this week said he was "devastated" to learn that Mosher had died from the crash and that his "thoughts and prayers" were with the man's family. Soules and his family request that their privacy and the privacy of Mr. Mosher's family is respected. He farmed his entire life and was a member of the Aurora American Legion and the Iowa Corn Growers Association.

The case has garnered the attention ofSoules' "Bachelor" fans as well as residents of Arlington, Iowa, where he lives, who had come to appreciate the reality TV star's work as an unofficial Iowa ambassador and farm industry advocate.

Police have not revealed the official charges pending against Soules, but his history of fleeing the scene will not work in his favor.

Today, Radar Online is reporting that authorities in Soules' Iowa hometown are investigating the accident as a criminal matter and have not ruled out the possibility that alcohol was a factor in the crash.
