Channel 7 learned that Deborah Powell, the daughter of Delores Powell who was given a home by ABC's Extreme Makeover Home addition, is in hot water after being involved in a fight.

A viewer gave Channel 7 cell phone video of Powell allegedly attacking another teenage girl with a box cutter on Monday afternoon. Powell was arrested Wednesday. During her arraignment in city court, the judge described her as a trouble student who has 26 illegal absences this semester. She was also suspended in November and removed from the school by a teacher in December.

Now, this fight has the teen in even more trouble.

The judge set bail at $5 thousand. Powell is expected back in court on February 8th for a felony hearing. We asked Deborah's mother Delores to comment on her daughter's arrest but she did not want to talk.

Police are still investigating the incident and have not yet commented on the video Channel 7 obtained.
