Ga. college suspends marching band performances
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) Clark Atlanta University has suspended performances by its marching band following an allegation of possible hazing.
Citing a university statement, Clark Atlanta did not say when the alleged hazing incident might have taken place, how many band members may have been involved or the extent of the possible hazing. Whether police are involved also is unclear.
An expected performance by the marching band the Mighty Marching Panthers at Clark Atlanta's first home football game was scrapped. Atlanta's Benjamin E. Mays High School marching band was to perform instead.
A Florida A&M drum major's death last year that investigators attributed to hazing raised the attention that colleges and universities around the country give to such allegations.
