 This FAMU hazing drama is spreading! Florida A&M University officials announced today they’re dismissing four students for their role in the death of a marching band member. A 911 tape has been released.

Authorities have not specified what caused the 26-year-old’s death after a performance last month with the Marching 100 band from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. His family has said it plans to sue the school “to get answers.”

Earlier today (Thursday), Florida Gov. Rick Scott called for a review of state universities’ hazing and harassment policies.

Meanwhile, Police in Florida are investigating another possible case of hazing involving the Florida A&M University marching band. The Tallahassee Police Department has opened an investigation into the alleged battery of 18-year-old Bria Shante Hunter. 

Hunter’s parents told Atlanta’s WXIA-TV on Tuesday that the freshman clarinet player suffered a fractured thigh bone and damaged knee. They say when she returned to Georgia she couldn’t bend her legs. At 112 pounds and 5-feet 1-inch tall Hunter said she was beaten at least three times this semester.

A police report states the alleged battery started Sept. 15 and continued through Nov. 7, but it does not say how it may have occurred. We toldja Drum major collapsed outside an Orlando hotel and died Nov. 19. Investigators have linked his death to hazing.

Champion’s funeral was held at Beulah Missionary Baptist Church in Decatur. The pews were packed with friends and family and Champion’s drum major uniform was on display next to his open casket, and a long line of mourners formed to pay their last respects.

Members of the marching band from Southwest DeKalb High School, where he attended, performed in their full regalia.
