Another Florida A and M University band member is facing hazing allegations. 25-year-old Dante Martin of Tampa is accused of hazing a female drummer as the band headed to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando last November for the Florida Classic.

The hazing incident happened on the same bus where drum major Robert Champion of Decatur was beaten until he died.  Requesta Harden was covered in a blanket and beaten until she was too woozy to perform during a ritual band members call the “hot seat.”

It was after the Florida Classic that Robert Champion was beaten on Bus C until he lost consciousness and died.

Martin is not charged in Champions death.   13 people face charges in Champion’s death.
