Filing: Chris Soules did not have alcohol in his system during crash
BUCHANAN COUNTY, Iowa (CBS2/FOX28) —
A new motion filed by former Bachelor star Chris Soules' defense team says that Soules did not have alcohol in his system at the time of a fatal crash.
The motion filed by Soules' defense asks that any evidence involving Soules possibly purchasing alcohol, consuming alcohol, driving while impaired, or having beer cans in and around his vehicle should not be admitted because blood and urine shows Soules did not have alcohol in his system.
Soules' defense also argued that using the word "victim" to describe Kenneth Mosher not be allowed because "victim" infers a crime occurred.
The full filing is below:
Soules is charged with leaving the scene of an April 24 crash in which he rear-ended a tractor, killing 66-year-old Kenneth Mosher. Soules was found in his home five hours later after the crash. He has pleaded not guilty.
Thursday, Soules' defense requested his trial be pushed back.
