The reality star 35, allegedly left the scene of the accident and was arrested at 1:16 a.m. in his hometown of Arlington, Iowa. The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office said the star’s pickup truck rear-ended Mosher’s tractor, sending both vehicles into a ditch. Mosher, 66, was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

“Chris has created his own problems,” Roepke told Radar. “This is life-changing for him. He has to deal with it himself. This isn’t the direction his family wanted him to go in.”
