Four FAMU students arrested in hazing case

20

January

Four members of Florida A&M's famed Marching 100 band were arrested on charges of hazing late Thursday.

The charges stem from a separate event than the Nov. 19 incident in which drum major Robert Champion died from injuries he sustained from a severe beating after a rivalry football game.

The students — Hakeem Birch, Brandon Benson, Anthony Mingo and Denise Bailey — belonged to a subgroup for clarinetists known as the "Clones," according to an arrest warrant.
