The Texas teen who killed 4 people while driving drunk in 2013 will finally get the punishment he deserves.
Ethan Couch, 18, was captured in Mexico on Monday after he and his mother Tonya Couch, 48, went missing earlier this month.
CNN reports Couch and his mother were taken into custody near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Monday.
He will be turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service.
The FBI joined the manhunt for Couch after they received a tip that he and his mother fled the country.
Couch and his mother went on the lam after a teen uploaded a video of him participating in a beer pong game at a party. Consuming alcohol was a violation of the terms of his probation.
Couch missed a subsequent appointment with his probation officer who was unable to get in contact with Couch's mother.
Couch was sentenced to 10 years probation in 2013 after he plowed into a group of people on the side of a highway, killing 4 of them and paralyzing one teen.
The sentence set off a firestorm of protests after Couch's lawyer argued that he was too rich to understand the consequences of his actions.
The unusual defense earned Couch the moniker "affluenza teen."
Couch faces 10 years in prison.
