4 More Charged with Hazing at Fla. A&M University

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Four Florida A&M band members have been charged with hazing in connection with a series of beatings and paddlings last year at a private home in Tallahassee.

Court records released Friday show Denise Bailey, Brandon Benson, Hakeem Birch and Anthony Mingo were booked and released on bail from the Leon County Jail.

The latest charges are separate from an incident where another female band member was beaten so severely that her thigh was broken.

FAMU drum major Robert Champion also died after an alleged hazing incident during a trip to Orlando last year. No charges have been filed in his death.
