Mr. Soules remained on the scene with those emergency responders for several more minutes before returning to his home,” his attorneys wrote. “Ultimately, Mr. Soules’ 911 call establishes probable cause does not exist for the charge against Mr. Soules.”

Talking in support of Soules, Buchanan County attorney Shawn M. Harden claimed that Soules did “attempt to obfuscate the immediate facts and circumstances surrounding the incident, including his level of intoxication and an explanation of the empty and partially consumed open alcoholic beverages located in and around his vehicle.”
Buchanan also addressed that Soules purchased the alcohol at a convenience store shortly after the accident, and claimed that Soules should have informed law enforcement where he could be located, however, he didn’t.
