Ethan Couch, the spoiled Texas teenager whose successful "affluenza" defense in the drunken driving deaths of four people, might have violated his probation with his antics in a new clip posted to social media.

As part of his probation, Couch, 19, is prohibited from drinking, using drugs and driving, or risk up to 10 years in custody on a violation. That might be an issue after Couch was seen in a clip uploaded to Twitter showing him attending a boozy bash in which people were playing beer pong, with Couch yukking it up when one partygoer leapt on a table, knocking it over.

The account from which the potentially-incriminating tweet came from, @BlondSpectre, added, "ya boy ethan couch violating probation. i got more if u want."

The clip was forwarded to local authorities, with the Tarrant County District Attorney's office acknowledging they were investigating the circumstances behind the clip.

Couch, two years ago, sparked a national controversy after Texas Judge Jean Boyd sentenced him to just 10 years probation and rehab after he killed four people (Pastor Brian Jennings, 41; Hollie Boyles, 52; Shelby Boyles, 21; and Breanna Mitchell, 24) in Burleson, Texas on June 15, 2013 running them over in his red Ford F-350 with a blood alcohol content of .24, three times the legal limit for an adult.
