(CNN) — Mexican authorities have detained so-called “affluenza” teen Ethan Couch and his mother near the popular Mexican Pacific beach resort town of Puerto Vallarta, officials briefed on the matter told CNN.

Couch went missing earlier this month, two years after he made national news when he was sentenced to probation for a drunken driving crash that killed four people.

Couch is expected to be turned over to U.S. Marshals, who have spent weeks searching for him.

He is wanted by authorities in Tarrant County, Texas, for allegedly violating probation. His mother was listed by Texas authorities as a missing person after her son’s disappearance, and the authorities said they believed she was assisting her son.

    He killed 4 people and got off with probation. Then runs away from checking in with his parole officer. This shitbag should be thanking God every day for not being in prison or dead. If he killed one of my kids while drunk driving he would either be dead or in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
