Police probe another possible hazing at FAMU

Police investigating another possible hazing case at FAMU involving freshman clarinet player By The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) ' 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.

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.

Drum major Robert Champion collapsed outside an Orlando hotel and died Nov. 19. Investigators have linked his death to hazing.

Hunter's father told The Associated Press Wednesday that he could not immediately comment.
