ORLANDO, FL (AP)- New documents released in the case of a Florida A&M drum major who died after being beaten by fellow band members show that being ritually hazed was what it took to be accepted into the inner circle of the percussionist section.

The affidavits for arrest warrants released Wednesday by the State Attorney's Office in Orlando says that it was common knowledge that a band member needed to be hazed to earn the respect of other percussionists.

Eleven band members have been charged with felony hazing for Robert Champion's death last November in Orlando. Two others face misdemeanors.

Champion had opposed hazing. But Champion was vying to be the Marching 100's top leader, and his friends say he volunteered to be hazed in order to win respect from others.
