FORT WORTH (KRLD) - The mother of the "affluenza" teen was arrested on a probation violation on Wednesday.

Tonya Couch was booked into the Tarrant County jail for failing a urinalysis test. KRLD has not learned what substance was found to cause the failure.

Her arrest comes just days before her son, Ethan, was set to be released from jail after two years behind bars.

In June, the Tarrant County District Attorney filed a motion to revoke her bond when she drank alcohol and was seen holding a rifle at a gun show. A judge decided not to put her in jail.
