Authorities have detained Ethan Couch — the "affluenza" teen — and his mother in the Mexican beach resort town of Puerto Vallarta, according to CNN.
Couch made national headlines in 2013 when he avoided jail time after drunkenly crashing his car into a vehicle on the side of the road, killing four people.
A psychologist testified the teen had "affluenza," or that he was too rich and coddled by his parents to understand the consequences of his actions. He received probation. (Video via WFAA)
