(Scroll down for video) A man wanted by police in the United States, was caught after he ordered pizza at Domino’s.
Ethan Couch, 18, became famous after he was allowed to walk free despite driving drunk and killing 4 people.
His lawyer argued that he suffered from affluenza, which affects kids from rich families who are so spoiled that they cannot tell right from wrong. The judge accepted the argument and the teen walked free.
He was placed on 10 years probation. Police began looking for Couch, after videos showed him violating his probation by drinking.
The videos were uploaded to the Internet.
Couch and his mother, Tonya, 48, fled to Mexico. Now, police in Mexico, said that a phone call to Domino’s Pizza helped them find the runaway teenager.
The mother and son ordered pizza to be delivered to a room at a condominium in the beach resort city of Puerto Vallarta.
Mexican police tipped off the U.S. Marshal Service, who found the mother and son at another location later that evening.
Jalisco state prosecutor Eduardo Almaguer Ramirez said that Mexican detectives worked the case after officials in United States asked them to help catch the two.
Police said that Ethan Couch dyed his hair black in an alleged attempt to hide from them.
The mother and son did not resist arrest. Both are being held in Guadalajara, and they will be returned to the United States.
