'Affluenza' Teen Ethan Couch, Mother Detained in Mexico

A wealthy Texas teenager famous for his "affluenza" defense during a trial for killing four people in a 2013 drunk driving crash has been taken into custody with his mother in Mexico, the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office said.

Ethan Couch, 18, and his mother Tonya, with whom he lives, were in custody of Mexican authorities early Tuesday, after setting off a manhunt that involved the U.S. Marshals and the FBI after the two went missing earlier this month.
