Ethan Couch Arrested Again After Violating Probation

Published

on

Ethan Couch was again arrested and accused of violating his probation.

Couch was the infamous person who had a drunk driving case and is known for his “affluenza” defense in Texas.

Couch, who is currently 22, was tested positive for THC on a drug patch. THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, the primary psychoactive component of the plant, cannabis.

When he was still in his teenage years, he was sentenced in 2013 to 10 years’ probation for drunk driving and killed four people and injured two others.

Prosecutors during that time wanted 20 years in prison. Still, Couch didn’t do any prison time when he did a psychologist test and was acclaimed that he was a victim for “affluenza,” a product of privileged and wealthy parents whose parents never put a limit on their kids.

This decision stirred many, especially the victims’ families and those anti-drunk driving advocates.

What happened in 2013? Couch, who was 16 years old by then, was driving a pickup and drove past four pedestrians on the road in Burleson, Texas.

A mother and a daughter died on the spot when they tried to help a friend whose SUV had broken down. A youth pastor who was driving by stopped and helped them. All of them got killed.

He was driving 70mph in a 40mph zone. On the other hand, two people at the back of Couch’s pickup got tossed and were injured severely. One of them having a brain injury and filed a lawsuit against Couch; however, it was settled.

A couple of hours after the crash, it was found out that Couch had a blood alcohol level of 0.24, three times more than the legal limit.

It was a cry for advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving. MADD President Colleen Sheehey-Church was told during an interview, “It was devastating to so many people. Seven-hundred and 20 days show you drunken driving homicides aren’t treated as violent crimes.”

Couch went to Mexico with his mother, Tonya Couch, in 2015, but they were sent back to the United States when a Texas judge ordered two years of jail time for him.

His mother was awaiting trial on felon and money laundering charges when they went to Mexico. In 2018, he was released.

On Thursday, Ethan Couch was arrested again according to the online court records, but it didn’t mention any court appearance.

The attorneys of Couch, Scott Brown, and Reagan Wynn said that he has been monitored regularly for alcohol and other illegal substance for more than 20 months and has never been decisive in the test of any substance. “We cannot make any further statement until we have the opportunity to investigate to determine if Ethan ingested THC and, if so if it was a voluntary act on his part,” the lawyers said in a statement.

Fred Couch, Ethan’s father, was charged with assault and accused of choking his lover in July. He was charged with assault of a house member by impeding her breath.
