Ethan Couch, the North Texas teenager found responsible for a drunk driving crash that killed four people near Burleson in 2013, has been apprehended in Mexico along with his mother.
Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson told WFAA the two were nabbed in the Pacific resort city of Puerto Vallarta.
ABC News reports that Ethan Couch and Tonya Couch were detained Monday evening at 6 p.m., according to a spokesperson for the Jalisco state prosecutor’s office. They have been turned over to immigration authorities in Mexico.
Couch, now 18, has been the subject of an international manhunt after violating probation terms for his conviction on four counts of vehicular manslaughter.
Ethan and his mother disappeared earlier this month after he failed to appear for a scheduled meeting with his probation officer. A warrant was issued for the teen’s arrest.
The case gained worldwide notoriety when Couch’s attorneys claimed that their client suffered from “affluenza” after being shielded from the consequences of his actions by his well-to-do parents.
