Authorities identify 3 adults accused of fighting at Miami-Dade school
Parents in Miami-Dade County court Wednesday said a fight involving adults on a public school campus was the result of the school administrator’s inaction after complaints about an ongoing conflict between students.
Authorities identified three of the four alleged trespassers who officers arrested on Tuesday at Miami Central High School. The fight, which did not involve weapons, prompted administrators to lock down the school under a code red.
“My sister went there four days before the incident and explained to the principal — nothing was done,” a woman told Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Mindy S. Glazer in court about the motive of the school fight.

David Peak, 22, Laquayle Peak, 18, Tranesha Housen, 23, are accused of attacking four Miami Central High School students, three girls and a boy, at the school, at 1781 NW 95th St., in Miami-Dade’s West Little River neighborhood, according to the arrest form.
The fourth co-defendant and Peak, 18, were accused of attacking the three girls, according to Peak’s arrest form. A girl said Tuesday the attackers ripped her shirt and pulled her hair.
Peak, 22, suffered injuries to his forehead, lips, and knees, so Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel took him to North Shore Hospital after treating him at the school.
Peak, 22, is facing charges of first-degree felony burglary with assault or battery, trespassing on school grounds, affray, and interference with an educational institution. Corrections officers were holding him without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
Peak, 18, is also facing charges of first-degree felony burglary with assault or battery, trespassing on school grounds, affray, and interference with an educational institution. Her bond was set at $15,000 with the option of an alternative bond of $1,500 with house arrest.
The charges Housen and the fourth defendant are facing were not public on Wednesday afternoon. Local 10 News has a pending request for information to Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
