“Affluenza Teen” Ethan Couch Is On The Lam After Violating Probation

Remember Ethan Couch? The teenager who, two years ago, got drunk and drove a pick-up truck into a crowd of people, killing four and injuring two, and got off with 10 years probation because his lawyer successfully convinced a jury that he was just too rich to understand right from wrong? Well, he’s on the run from police after violating his probation. You don’t say.

According to Couch’s attorneys, the judge has issued a “directive to apprehend” the notorious “Affluenza Teen” after his juvenile probation officer was unable to contact either him or his mother.

As far as anyone knows, this is unrelated to the video that surfaced last month, purporting to show Couch playing beer pong, which would be a violation of his probation as well. You mean the kid didn’t learn his lesson after receiving such a pathetically lenient sentence? Color me shocked.
