Warrant Issued for Ethan Couch, Teen Who Suffered From 'Affluenza,' for Violating His Probation 


Ethan Couch, the Texas teen who supposedly suffered from a severe “affluenza,” has violated his probation. In case you’ve forgotten about the curious case of Couch, a teen who single-handedly united the internet in rage, he was given ten years of juvenile probation after killing four people in a drunk driving accident. His lawyers contended that Couch suffered from “affluenza,” a disease born of rich parents and privilege.

Apparently, probation does little to cure affluenza; WFAA reports that a warrant has been issued for Couch’s arrest.

According to the report, Couch missed a check-in with his probation officer earlier this month. The officers have been unable to locate Couch or his mother, his father—who was arrested for impersonating a police officer in 2014—does not know where either are.

This isn’t the first time that Couch has run afoul of his probation. Earlier this month, a video circulated on Twitter that showed Couch playing beer pong with friends in October. Check out the cool posters:
