Hotel worker: Affluenza teen woke mom to pay strip club bar bill in Mexico

- “Affluenza” teen Ethan Couch had to wake up his mother to pay a strip club bill he racked up one night while hiding in Mexico, according to a hotel employee.

Ethan Couch, 18, spent most of his time in their room at the Los Tules resort in Puerto Vallarta, but he went out one night to a strip joint, resort employee Marina Meza told the Dallas Morning News.

A waiter and manager from the club came back with him to the hotel in the middle of the night because he didn’t have enough money to pay his bar tab.

Meza said she had to rustle Tonya Couch out of bed to come downstairs and cover the bill before the club employees would leave, the paper reported.

“Then I found out about his past and though that too was really odd,” Meza, 46, told the paper. “He didn’t have enough money to pay the bar bill and his mother had to bail him out.”

Tonya Couch, 48, arrived back in the U.S. on Thursday while a Mexican court granted Ethan temporary stay against deportation.
