Ethan Couch, the "affluenza" teen responsible for killing bystanders in a drunken-driving accident, is back in the U.S., according to Mexican officials.
Mexico's National Institute of Migration said in a statement ABC obtained Thursday that Couch was transported on a commercial flight to Dallas "where he will be received by United States authorities since he is facing various charges there."
Couch killed four people in a 2013 car crash and used his wealthy upbringing as a defense, saying he had "affluenza." He later fled to Mexico with his mother, who faced charges in Texas earlier this month. (Video via KTVT)
