Stanford band temporarily suspended through next spring

PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) — The Stanford marching band has been temporarily suspended through next spring after a panel found repeated violations of school policies.

The punishment announced Friday comes after the band was barred from performing at away games during the 2015-16 season for violating policies on sexual harassment, alcohol, controlled substances and hazing.

Stanford University officials tell the Mercury News (http://bayareane.ws/2gMyGm9) the band will be reconstituted under a new music director.

The band was booed off the field during the Rose Bowl halftime show earlier this year after offending some fans with its performance.
