The family of Couch, who killed four people in a drunken wreck, have reached a settlement of more than $2 million with the family of a teenage boy left disabled in the accident. Long before Ethan Couch and his family became notorious for using an “affluenza” defense in his deadly drunken driving crash, they had multiple run-ins with the law, each time flouting authority or relying on their wealth to get them out of trouble.
