Ethan Couch, the Burleson, Texas teen who infamously used the “affluenza” defense to excuse killing four people while drunk driving back in 2013, went on the lam a couple of weeks ago after violating his probation. The dirtbag’s no good mom joined him and as officials feared they fled the country to Mexico—where they have been detained.

Reports CNN:

Couch, 18, went missing earlier this month in Texas where he was under probation for a 2013 drunk driving crash that killed four people and drew nationwide attention over his lawyers’ use of his privileged upbringing as part of their defense at trial.

He and his mother were detained near the Mexican beach resort of Puerto Vallarta, roughly 950 miles from home, officials told CNN on Monday.

The teenager is expected to be turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service, which has spent weeks searching for him. A spokesman for the service declined to comment Monday.

Couch is wanted by authorities in Tarrant County, Texas, for allegedly violating his probation. His mother, Tonya, was listed by Texas authorities as a missing person after her son’s disappearance, and the authorities said they believed she was assisting him.

Guess despite all that affluence, they didn’t have El Chapo money.
