TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Board of Governors can continue its investigation of how Florida A&M administrators handled concerns about hazing at the school.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Friday asked the board to suspend any investigation into hazing while it and other law enforcement agencies investigate the death of Robert Champion, a drum major in the university's Marching 100 band.
But board spokeswoman Kelly Layman said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey and Chancellor Frank Brogan later discussed the investigation and Bailey agreed it could continue because it wasn't examining Champion's death or any hazing that contributed to it.
The board's inspector general won't contact any potential witnesses in the Champion case and will work with FDLE to make sure it doesn't interfere with law enforcement.
