7:29 am
this morning the first many imagine images of them on the run. in this exclusive video you see ethan couch entering this butcher shop across the street from his shabby rental. the formerly blond teen's hair dyed black. hat backwards seems at ease talking to the butcher paying for chicken in pace sos and leaving with a little wave. two days earlier his mother in that tank top tries to pay for food with u.s. dollars. she chats with the butcher who won't take the greenbacks from the texan. about two hours after this surveillance video couch is shot monday he is arrested. you see him cuffed and escorted to a cruiser and then up close in police custody. >> after 11 days of the u.s. martha shall service tracking down ethan couch we is a he's in custody. >> reporter: couch and his mother planned to disappear shortly after this video allegedly showing couch violating parole at a boozy party went viral on twitter but

incarcerated. >> reporter: prosecutors may get their shot pretty soon. it's expected tonya will be deported back to the u.s. as early as tonight, could even face a judge in texas tonight. but we're learning just now just moments ago papers have been filed here in mexico to try to delay ethan's return to the u.s. no word yet on whether that has been successful. david. >> matt gutman, thanks. we're joined by one of the lead investigators on the case from the beginning. tar tar tarrant county detective dee anderson. how soon will they be hauled back. >> they're still in mexico in the custody of the mexican authorities and expect within the next 24 to 48 hours to have them back here in texas. >> you have reported that the teenager and his mother had a sort of going away party before they even left. punishment now. this teenager had only ever faced probation for drunk driving killing four. what kind of punishment does he face now? >> what we're hope something
7:32 am
adult court system and placed on an adult probation system which will be very, very strict and very intensive. much different than what he was under the juvenile system. probably the way it looks under the law is messed up as it is he'll probably only be able to sentence him to 120 days actually in jail under the old case but then he would be able to put him under very, very intense supervision on probation, much different than he was before. >> the potential for 120 days for the teenager in the meantime, the mom could face more jail time than the son. >> that's true. the case we're filing against her for assisting him and hindering an apprehension in texas is a felony punishable by two to ten years in the penitentiary so she could conceivably do actual prison time and we certainly will push to have her prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. >> you found them in puerto vallarta. what kind of message does this send to that community where four families are remembering
7:33 am
drunk driving incident. >> yeah, i mean it's just terrible for those families. they've all been victimized all over again. they just had to all spend christmas without a loved one because of his irresponsible activities and so i know from talking to some of the family members they were very hopeful that we would catch him and bring him back to texas and let him face justice and such that it is and i know they're very relieved he's in custody and hopefully on the way back to texas soil. >> all right, sheriff anderson with us from texas this morning, sheriff, thanks so much. >> my pleasure. and there is much more ahead this morning. coming up, the other case, the "glee" star known for playing the bad boy in the series arrested in real life. what police say they found in his home. the battle of the cell phone plans ringing in the new year. free data for life? is it too good to be true? we'll tell you what the best carrier may be for your cash next. f that class, knows that it's not just about the weight;
