Former "Bachelor" Chris Soules has hired a high-profile law firm to defend him after he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident that killed another Iowa farmer.

His next court date is set for Tuesday, May 2. This time, Soules made a distressed call to 911 before fleeing the scene.

Soules responds "yes" over and over as the operator asks about the man, including whether he was thrown into "a ditch" as a result of the accident.

Soules makes initial call to 911. "It doesn't appear the driver of the tractor is breathing at this time", dispatchers can be heard saying about a minute later. Soules apparently checked the victim's pulse and asked a person at the scene to administer CPR. Soules asked the operator and then disconnected the call, stating that he would call back.

Our sources say the fact Soules is famous works against him, because prosecutors don't want to appear soft on celebrities. Mosher and his family live on a farm near the scene of the crash and have lived in the town for the majority of their lives. "Yeah", Soules replied. "There's people here". We have law enforcement, medical en route to you. He was taken after the crash by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, where he was pronounced dead. "I believe that Chris is an upstanding and honorable man, as is now fully coming to light with the discovery of his 911 call", Nilsson, 30, told TooFab on Wednesday.

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. He said it took several hours for officers to write a search warrant application and get a judge to approve it, allowing them to enter the home to arrest him.

Approximately five hours after fleeing the scene, Soules is arrested.

Chris has since deleted his Instagram account, and his representative said in a statement: "Chris Soules was involved in an accident Monday evening (April 24) in a rural part of Iowa near his home". He must wear an ankle-bracelet monitor and has turned in his passport.

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. Open alcohol containers were found inside his truck, according to documents obtained by the Daily News. Regardless, we're sure the victim (Kenneth Mosher)'s family would like some answers about what exactly caused this fatal crash.
