Three FAMU Students Arrested So Far in Hazing Death

"[The band] should not be on the field until they clean house, until they get it completely clean because there's a whole other 100 students still on that band and the same thing could happen to them," he said.

On Wednesday, lamar called Champion's death "an American tragedy" and refused to release the identities of those charged "so they don't flee."

So far, three of the 13 individuals have been arrested. Caleb Jackson, 23, and Rikki Willis, 24, were both charged with felony hazing and taken to Leon Count Jail. Bryan Jone, 23, turned himself in and was charged with felony hazing in Hillsborough, Fla., but was released on a $15,000 bond.

Some band members have said that Champion died after participating in a rite of passage called "crossing bus C," a ritual where new band members are beaten as they walk from the back to the front of the bus.
