Band Members Charged in Hazing Death

Florida prosecutors are charging 12 former members of the Florida A&M University band with manslaughter. The charges come more than one year after a drum major, Robert Champion, died in a hazing incident.
Ten band members were charged with felony hazing in May 2012, but prosecutors said March 4 they are upping the charges to manslaughter. Two other defendants were also charged with manslaughter.
Champion, 26, died in Orlando after collapsing while allegedly being beaten during a hazing ritual in November 2011. The incident reportedly occurred on a bus following the annual Florida A&M – Bethune Cookman football game.
According to officials, Champion, who had numerous bruises, died of internal bleeding.
Florida A&M hired Bryan F. Smith as its anti-hazing administrator in January.
