The Texas teen who became a fugitive after allegedly violating his probation sentence for killing four people in a drunken-driving crash was detained in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Monday.
Ethan Couch and his mother were wanted in Tarrant County, Texas, after vanishing two weeks ago after he was sentenced to probation about two years ago in court for intoxication manslaughter.
Couch, the ‘affluenza’ teen, is expected to be turned over to the US Marshals Service and his mother Tonya was also detained, according to a CNN report, citing officials briefed on the matter.
The public affairs department of the prosecutors’ office in Mexico’s Jalisco state confirmed that the mother and son were detained in Puerto Vallarta around 6.00pm Monday.
The prosecutor’s office said the pair were being held by Mexico’s immigration authorities because they could not prove their legal status in the country.
Couch had dyed his hair brown to disguise himself when the pair went on the run – but didn’t shave off his beard.
In a new arrest photo released by the Jalisco State Prosecutor’s Office Monday, the 18-year-old is seen in a short-sleeve, button-down shirt opened nearly down to his navel, and with his hands cuffed behind his back.
The ‘affluenza’ nickname for the 18-year-old came from a psychologist who said during Couch’s trial he was so wealthy and spoiled he could not tell the difference between right and wrong.
The American Psychiatric Association does not recognize ‘affluenza’ as a diagnosis and Couch’s sentence to ten years of probation – instead of 20 years of prison time – sparked outrage.
