On March 18, 2013, at approximately 7:06 a.m., a fight broke out in the Annapolis High School cafeteria where students were gathered prior to classes starting for the day. The Annapolis High School Resource Officer responded to the cafeteria and discovered that the fight involved several students while other students gathered to watch and formed a loud, disorderly crowd. The SRO requested assistance from other officers, and numerous police officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Department and other agencies responded to assist.

The responding officers were able to quickly restore order and control. The preliminary investigation suggests two female students, a 15-year-old and an 18-year-old named Lakyra Reid, became involved in a verbal dispute. The dispute was in response to posts made via social media the preceding weekend. The dispute turned physical when the 15-year-old picked up a chair and hit Reid with it. Several other students became involved in the altercation before officers could restore order. 

The two initial suspects were identified and charged as follows:

  • 15-year-old female from Annapolis, Maryland, was charged with Affray, Disorderly Conduct and Disturbing School Operations, Assault and Reckless Endangerment.  The Assault and Reckless Endangerment charges are in response to the suspect using a metal/plastic chair as a weapon. 
  • Lakyra T. Reid, 18, of 1165 Madison Street  in Annapolis, Maryland was charged with Affray, Disorderly Conduct and Disturbing School Operations, Assault and Resisting Arrest.  The suspect is charged with assaulting a police officer.
