Toss the Little Bugger in Jail and Throw Away the Key - Affluenza My Arse
Ethan's rich parents hired a team of crack lawyers who got the judge to believe the punk was suffering from "affluenza." They said his affluent upbringing was largely responsible for this crash and he should be let off lightly. They argued that he was so spoiled that he couldn't tell wrong from right and, in any case, he was much too spoiled to be tossed in jail. The judge agreed, sentencing Ethan to treatment for alcohol abuse and 10-years probation.
Now, just a few years later, Ethan has skipped his mandatory meetings with his probation officer. Authorities have been unable to locate him or his mother. They've been looking for the probationer due to a recent video posted to the internet in which he appears to be drinking again.
A judge has issued a "directive to apprehend" - the juvi equivalent of an arrest warrant.
