Police say Charles Zollicoffer, one of the men accused in the VSU hazing incident, is on the run again.

He is one of four men facing new, harsher charges related to the hazing deaths of two Hampton Roads teens.

With the threat of 10 years in jail, Charles Zollicoffer is on the run, and this isn't the first time authorities have had trouble tracking him down.

In April, seven students were told to link arms and cross the Appomattox River.

Marvel Edmundson of Portsmouth, and Newport News native Jauwon Holmes died during the incident.

In late April, three of the men involved in the so-called Men of Honor fraternity were quickly taken into custody, but Zollicoffer wasn't so easily caught.

Finally police got their man and charged him with hazing.

A conviction would put him in jail for a year. He got out on bond.

With a new involuntary manslaughter charge awaiting him, Zollicoffer could face up to a decade behind bars.
