The DA’s office was first made aware of the video when the poster mentioned the office and the City of Burleson in the post. Burleson responded by telling the poster to contact the Sheriff’s Office and the DA. The city said it would not be involved in any investigation unless there was evidence a new crime had occurred within its jurisdiction.
It is too early for investigators to know if the video is a violation of the terms of Couch’s probation. It’s not clear when or where the video was shot, and if it is actually Couch in the video. He is not seen drinking in the video. His 10-year probation included restrictions on drinking and driving.MORE NEWS: North Texas School Districts Facing Possible Lawsuits Over Mask Policies
