FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Latest on “affluenza” teenager Ethan Couch’s deportation from Mexico (all times local):

11: 05 a.m.

“Affluenza” teenager Ethan Couch has arrived in Texas after being deported from Mexico.

The 18-year-old arrived on a flight at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport late Thursday morning. He could be seen walking through the airport escorted by law enforcement.

Investigators believe Couch and his mother fled to Mexico in early December, as Texas prosecutors investigated whether he violated his probation in a 2013 drunken-driving wreck that killed four people.

Couch and his mother were apprehended on Dec. 28 in Puerto Vallarta.

His mother was quickly deported. Couch initially won a court-ordered delay, but his attorneys recently dropped the deportation fight, saying his rights were protected by Mexican authorities.

During Couch’s trial in the drunken-driving case, a defense expert argued that Couch had been coddled into a sense of irresponsibility by his wealthy parents, a condition the expert called “affluenza.”

The Mexican immigration institute says it has taken a Texas teenager who used an “affluenza” defense in a fatal drunken-driving accident to the Mexico City airport, to fly him back to Texas to face charges.

The institute said Thursday that Ethan Couch would be placed on a commercial flight to Dallas, Texas.

He formally ratified his decision to drop an appeal against deportation on Monday.

Couch and his mother, Tonya Couch, were detained in the resort of Puerto Vallarta in December. His mother was quickly sent back to the U.S. She was released after posting bail.

    You are delusional if you think these two cave n!@@ers mom and her son will do time in prison for running to Mexico. This is just a simple misunderstanding. He will get preferential treatment just like the neanderthal apes in Oregon that threatened the lives of cops while armed with loaded guns. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  2. All that $$$$ has made their asses CRAZY!!!!!!!

    If that’s what having $ does to you -then I will gladly stay in my own lane!!!!!!

    I agree. But you know as well as I do, justice is different for them, white and rich. His sentence will be light and will get credit for time served even though it wasn’t in the U.S.A.
