A wealthy Texas teenager who was given leniency after killing four people while driving drunk has been captured in Mexico with his mother, The New York Times reports. 

Ethan Couch gained national notoriety when a judge gave him probation in 2013 after his lawyer called a witness who claimed he suffered from “affluenza,” a so-called psychological condition marked by an unwillingness to know the difference between right and wrong because of family wealth.

Couch, 18, was facing prison this month after allegedly violating probation by drinking alcohol.

Authorities said he and his mother, Tonya Couch, 48, fled to Mexico before they were arrested near the Mexican resort city of Puerto Vallarta.
