Ethan Couch is the kid who drove drunk and killed four people in Texas two years ago. He violated his probation and went on the run to Mexico with his mother.

Employees of the resort where they were hiding have said that a gun was found in their room and Tonya Couch had to pick up the tab at a strip club when Ethan didn't have enough cash.

The Dallas Morning News reports:

Ethan Couch spent most of his time in their room, but he went out one night to a gentleman’s club.

That in itself wasn’t unusual. “A young man going to a men’s club? How normal is that?” Meza said.

Then a waiter and manager from the club came back with him to the hotel because he didn’t have enough money to pay his bar tab. Meza had to wake Tonya Couch to come downstairs and cover the bill before the club employees would leave.

“Then I found out about his past and thought that too was really odd,” she said. “He didn’t have enough money to pay the bar bill, and his mother had to bail him out.”


If you're like me, a quick glance at any video or photo of Tonya Couch would have you thinking that the 'affluenza' teen ran off to Mexico with Carrot Top.
