A new report says affluenza teen Ethan Couch spent more than $2,000 on strippers and alcohol at two Puerto Vallarta clubs while he was hiding from authorities.
The Daily Mail reported Monday that Ethan Couch maxed out his debit card and was so drunk that employees had to help him back to the hotel he was hiding at with his mom. Tonya Couch was forced to pay the remainder of Ethan’s two tabs for strippers and booze.
Ethan Couch partied at two clubs – Prestige and Harem, the latter of which boasts on a sign outside its building of “Boobies & Booties Galore.” The newspaper reports that Couch spent hours inside Harem, a nightclub also known to have hosted infamous drug lord El Chapo Guzman.
A hotel employee told The Daily Mail that Tonya Couch was “furious” Ethan had spent so much money at the clubs.
Ethan Couch, as of Monday, remained in custody at an immigration facility in Mexico City.
Lawyer Fernando Benitez says a Tuesday meeting with client Ethan Couch at an immigration detention center in Mexico City will determine whether Couch stretches out the process, or agrees to drop the appeal. Benitez said he was hired to represent Couch in Mexico, but doesn’t say who hired him.
Benitez said the appeal centers on why Mexico tried to use a deportation proceeding instead of the longer extradition process in Couch’s case.
Tonya Couch and her 18-year-old son, Ethan, were taken into custody last week in Mexico, where authorities believe the pair fled to in November as Texas prosecutors investigated whether he had violated his probation.
Ethan Couch was driving drunk and speeding near Fort Worth in June 2013 when he crashed into a disabled SUV, killing four people and injuring several others, including passengers in his pickup truck. He pleaded guilty to four counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault causing serious bodily injury and was sentenced to 10 years’ probation.
