Police have been ordered to detain Ethan Couch, the young man diagnosed with "affluenza" — a sense of entitlement so extreme, due to his family's wealth, that he had no concept of consequence — after he killed four people during a drunk driving accident in 2013.

Following the deadly crash, Couch was ordered to 10 years probation, as well as rehab treatment in a cushy $438,000 per-year facility.

But all hell broke loose earlier this month when a six-second video posted to Twitter seemed to feature the teen violating his probation and playing beer pong with friends.

Since then, Couch's probation officer says he has been unable to contact the troubled Texan-born teenager, nor his mother.

Watch the Video on RadarOnline:

"We have recently learned for last several days the juvenile probation officer has been unable to make contact with Ethan or his mother, with whom he's been residing," Couch's attorneys, Regan Wynn and Scott Brown, released in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.

"It's our understanding that the court has issued a directive to apprehend to have Ethan detained because he is out of contact with his probation officer," the statement continues. "We do not have any further information concerning this situation. It would not be appropriate for us to publicly discuss this matter further at this time."

Police have not confirmed any information regarding the Twitter video or issued any further charges related to the allegations against Couch.
