TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Two Florida A&M University students are planning to fight charges that they beat a fellow member of the famed Marching 100 band so hard during a hazing incident she was left with a broken thigh.

Twenty-three-year-old Sean Hobson and 19-year-old Aaron Golson were charged Monday with hazing and battery. Twenty-two-year-old James Harris was charged with hazing. All three remained jailed early Tuesday.

Attorneys for Harris and Golson -- who appeared at a court hearing Tuesday --say their clients would plead not guilty. A Leon County judge set a bond of $2,500 for Harris and bonds of $10,000 for Golson and Hobson.

Tallahassee police say all three men were involved in hazing Bria Shante Hunter for the "Red Dawg Order" -- a band clique for students from Georgia.
