Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson personally escorted Tonya Couch from DFW Airport to jail, his first time to do so with a prisoner.
The sheriff updated Fox 4's Steve Eagar from his home in Kennedale.
He says his department plans to keep Tonya in custody until a judge tells him otherwise. He also says Tonya was polite, cooperative and appreciated the way she was treated by the sheriff's office.
At this point, the sheriff says his office's main focus is bringing Ethan Couch back to Tarrant.
Couch is currently in Mexico, fighting extradition.
