We can now add a new outrageous defense to our law books: “Affluenza,” the state or condition in which a child of wealth and privilege is raised with no consequences for bad behavior.

A judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Reza Eslaminia, former member of the infamous “Billionaire Boys Club,” of the 1980s. Prosecutors have charged Eslaminia, now a cab driver, with vehicular manslaughter in connection with a pedestrian death last year. It seems that Eslaminia expected in court, and has failed to appear.
