December 13, 2011

Three members of the marching band at Florida A&M University were arrested Monday and charged in the beating of a woman as part of a hazing ritual for the band, the Associated Press reported. The beating -- with fists and a metal ruler -- broke the woman's thigh.

As of Monday night, the three students who were arrested were in jail.
