Grainy cellphone video supposedly depicting two teenage girls fighting is now at the center of an investigation by Texas Child Protective Services.

One of the girls in the video is in CPS custody and her latest caregiver, according to the teen's biological mother, organized the fight.

"The lady she was placed with sitting their 'egging' her on telling her to get up and whip the other kids," Martha Burge, the teen's mother said.

A family friend of the caretaker maintained the fight was purposely conducted under the caretaker's supervision to once and for all end hostilities between the girls.

"Our staff is still following up we are concerned, we are genuinely concerned about what happened," Gwen Carter, a CPS spokeswoman said.
