The Texas Southern University band was thrust into the spotlight over the weekend as a video surfaced appearing to show one member getting into an altercation with a fan.
The person in the video appeared to be a part of the Texas Southern Ocean of Soul marching. The band was there to support the Tigers football team as they played Jackson State on the road.

The video showed a person confronting the tuba player and the two having words. Then, the tuba player punched the heckler four times, knocking him back and down in his seat.
It is unclear what sparked the incident.
“Texas Southern University is aware of an incident involving a member of the Ocean of Soul marching band during a recent away game,” Texas Southern told the Houston Chronicle. “The incident is under investigation. The University is implementing additional measures to ensure the safety of all band members during performances.”
