The mother of U.S. fugitive teen Ethan Couch has returned to the United States without her son after her deportation from Mexico.

Tonya Couch was in handcuffs in the custody of U.S. Marshals when she was brought through Los Angeles International Airport early Thursday after a flight from Mexico.

She looked away from cameras as she was taken to an unmarked car and driven away.

It was unclear why she was brought to Los Angeles instead of Texas, where she and her son live and where he was on probation for a 2013 drunken-driving crash. A U.S. Marshals spokesman said he could not reveal any details about her trip through California, citing security concerns in transporting someone in custody.
