Somehow, amazingly, I don’t think we’ve covered the story of the Affluenza Teen here on BroBible. For the small segment of you not familiar with it, Ethan Couch killed four people in 2013 while driving drunk at the age of 16. His BAC was 0.24 when he was arrested.
However, he was able to get off on nothing but 10 years probation after his lawyer successfully argued that Couch suffered from Affluenza. That because he came from wealth and means, and because his parents shielded him from the consequences of his actions his whole life, he couldn’t reasonably expect to understand right from wrong.
Ha, yea, fuck that, except the judge agreed.
The resultant probation appears to not have done the trick of teaching Couch a lesson. He was spotted drinking recently when someone posted a beer pong dunk video involving him online. That’s a violation of his agreement with the courts, but instead of turning himself into authorities, Couch and his mother fled the country. His parents really are enablers, I’ll give him that. But they were recently detained in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and Couch is fighting extradition to the United States.
So how did he spend his time on the run? By … being himself. According to reports, he spent $2,000 at El Chapo’s favorite strip club.
Ethan Couch blew more than $2,000 on hookers and booze at a Mexican Mafia hangout on the night his mom was roused from her bed to bail him out, Daily Mail Online has learned exclusively.
The teenage Texan runaway was ‘staggering drunk’ and strip club workers had to hold him up to stop him from falling as they escorted him to his hotel room to wake his mother to get their dough.
That’s right. He dropped two grand he didn’t have, then had to wake his mom up for her to get the check. Who is worse in this situation? Is everyone an acceptable answer?
Couch, it appears, had quite the evening.
First he hit Prestige, generally considered among the classiest of Puerto Vallarta’s myriad clubs, many of which make no attempt to hide the fact that full sex is available – and even offer free condoms to anyone paying to take a girl into a back room.
He spent 500 pesos and had only one beer before walking 200 yards south and across the street to Harem, said the manager
It was at Harem that Couch hit his stride, spending hours, and thousands of his parents’ dollars, on the ‘boobies and booties’ on offer.
Harem is allegedly one of El Chapo’s favorite haunts in Puerto Vallarta. Now there’s a dude who knows how to avoid the consequences of his actions. Maybe those two could talk.
