“Affluenza teen” arrested again for violating probation

SAN ANTONIO (Texas News Radio) — The “affluenza teen”– who is no longer a teen — has been arrested again.

WFAA-TV reports Ethan Couch was arrested Thursday for violating his probation.

Couch earned the “affluenza teen” nickname when a psychologist said in his 2013 drunk-driving crash trial that his well-to-do upbringing made it difficult to understand right from wrong.

That crash killed four people.

Couch was released from jail in April 2018 with several conditions… including a GPS monitor, a 9 p.m. curfew and drug and alcohol testing.

KTVT-TV said Couch’s drug test showed THC in the 22-year-old’s system.
