TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — One of the defendants charged with hazing a Florida A&M University drum major is already facing charges in another hazing incident.

Aaron Golson, 19, turned himself on Thursday in Gadsden County.

Golson, who is from Georgia, is one of 11 band members charged with felony hazing in connection to the November death of Robert Champion. Two others are going to be charged with misdemeanor charges authorities said.

Golson was one of two band members arrested last December by Tallahassee police with battery and hazing for allegedly hitting Bria Hunter so hard it broke her thigh. A third member was charged at the time with hazing because the incident occurred in his off-campus apartment.

Hunter was beaten about three weeks before Champion died following a hazing ritual on a band bus.
