‘Bachelorette’ 2017 Star Lucas Yancey Injured Multiple Victims in DUI Crash
More and more details about these Season 13 guys’ pasts keep coming out, and most of these tidbits aren’t positive.
More specifically, a number of Rachel’s potential husbands have had brushes with the law in the past.
However, some were more serious than that…
For instance, Dr. Bryan Abasolo was accused of insurance fraud.
And now we've learned Lucas Yancey was involved in a serious DUI that injured multiple people!
According to court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com, in December 2007, the then-20-year-old was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs with bodily injury.
Not only that, he also had two counts of injury to multiple victims and six counts of infliction of great bodily harm, leading to his arrest and $50K bond.
The actor-turned-real-estate-investor initially pleaded not guilty to all charges, but later withdrew his plea on the DUI .08 with bodily injury charge. He then entered a plea of nolo contendere, i.e., he accepted the conviction as though a guilty plea had been entered but did not admit guilt.
The remaining charges were then dismissed due to another negotiated plea.
Still, he was sentenced to 20 days in jail, three years probation, and 500 hours of community service.
He also had to pay $1,611 in fines, and complete a first offender program.
Of course, this was 10 years ago, so not only is he likely long finished with his sentence, but he’s also (hopefully) grown up quite a bit since then.
Still, seems unlikely a high-powered attorney like Rachel — who also boasts a federal judge for a father — would feel great about dating someone with such a messy legal past. Just sayin’!
The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 22 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
