TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida A&M University President James Ammons says campus police and the Tallahassee Police Department are investigating another suspected case of hazing.
Ammons briefly discussed the case Monday with FAMU's Board of Trustees. Board members are meeting weekly to get updates on the investigation into the death of drum major Robert Champion.
Tallahassee authorities acknowledged the new hazing case last week but said they could not provide details.
Ammons said the case is related to a spring 2011 initiation ceremony involving the university chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi, a national band fraternity. The incident was reported in late November and then was handed over to campus police.
Ammons had no new information regarding the Champion investigation. No arrests have been made yet even though his death was ruled a homicide.
