A brawl at Langham Creek High School Tuesday continues to play out on social media. Now there's another video -- a probable cause hearing in which a 34-year-old parent of a student is charged with injury to a child.

Claudia Warner is accused of striking a 14-year-old girl during the fight. She's also accused of having a knife in her possession, though it's not clear if she had it during the melee.


The fight broke out in the school cafeteria. In the video, several people, including Warner's own daughter are believed to be throwing punches. The girl targeted fought back as well.

There was tension between the two female students. This weekend, Amber Edwards was emailed a screenshot of a threat posted on social media. Edwards is the mother of the 14-year-old girl who was beaten during the fight.

"I looked at it and said there's no way an adult is going to come to Langham Creek and beat a child."

Warner is accused of doing that. A Cy-Fair ISD spokesperson says she violated the visitor policy by not registering at the office.

For Edwards, the damage has been done. Her daughter is bruised, her face is scratched, and she's depressed.

The video of the fight went 'viral.' "When I saw it on the news I started to cry. I've already deleted my Facebook account," she said.

Edwards has an attorney. She is considering legal action against Warner and her daughter, and perhaps the school district.

"Where was the security?" she asked. She also wants her daughter to be transferred to another school.

The school district says it will not comment on the case since it is now being prosecuted.

As for Amber Edwards, she says she kept moving to improve her child's education. "I worked real hard to do that," she said, moving her to Cypress. "And to go through this? She wouldn't have went through this in the 'hood."
