Bachelor Nation + Chris Soules
It's been a really sad, weird week for Bachelor star Chris Soules. On Tuesday, Soules was arrested and charged for allegedly fleeing the scene of a fatal car crash in Iowa. Now, Soules is speaking out for the first time following his arrest. In a statement given to InTouch Weekly Wednesday, Soules said, "My family and I are overwhelmed with this tragedy, but we are sticking together and we’ll get through it. Thank you for reaching out." This story is continuing to unfold, but just incredibly sad.
