WATCH: Warrant Out for Texas ‘Affluenza’ Teen Who Killed 4

An arrest warrant has been issued for Ethan Couch, the Texas teen involved in the infamous affluenza DUI crash in 2013.

Couch, who prompted outrage after receiving no more than probation following a deadly drunken driving accident two years ago that killed four people, missed a meeting with his probation officer earlier this month, according to KVUE.com.

The Texas teen made headlines after his defense team argued that the teen suffered from “affluenza,” a condition in which Couch was unable to control his behavior because of the extravagant lifestyle his wealth enabled him.

It’s been reported that for the last several days the juvenile probation officer has been unable to make contact with Ethan or his mother, with whom he’s been residing, said attorneys Regan Wynn and Scott Brown in a statement, reported NBC DFW.

Earlier this month, a video was posted on Twitter, showing Couch with alcohol at a party. The question remains, Did Couch violate the terms of his probation? If so, he could face up to 10 years in prison.
