TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Rick Scott is calling on university presidents to examine hazing rules in the wake of the death of a Florida A&M University drum major.
Scott asked Thursday that the state university system have all 11 universities review anti-hazing rules and penalties. Scott said in a letter to Chancellor Frank Brogan that is must be clear to students that hazing will not be tolerated.
Robert Champion was found unresponsive on Nov. 19 on a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel after the school's football team lost to a rival.
Law-enforcement authorities have already said hazing was involved in Champion's death.
FAMU has expelled four students in connection to the incident and Brogan's office has launched a probe into whether FAMU ignored past warnings about hazing.
