A Texas judge ruled on Friday that America’s so-called “affluenza” teenager should remain in custody for now at a juvenile detention center in Fort Worth where he has been held since he was deported from Mexico a day earlier.

Ethan Couch, 18, fled to Mexico last month with his mother after he apparently violated the probation deal reached in juvenile court that kept him out of prison for killing four people while driving drunk in 2013.
