1 Vanderbilt player released on bond, 1 indicted
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A fifth Vanderbilt football player has been indicted for his alleged role in the rape of an unconscious student on campus.
Metro Nashville Police say 21-year-old Chris Boyd gave another defendant advice on how to cover up the crime. Vanderbilt released a statement Friday saying he had been suspended. Four other players have been dismissed.
Two California men also were indicted Friday. Nineteen-year-old Miles Finley and 20-year-old Joseph Quinzio are charged with felony tampering with evidence. The two men are acquaintances of defendant Brandon Vandenburg, a 20-year-old former player from Indio, Calif.
Vandenburg remains jailed on $350,000 bond, while three other former players have bonded out: 19-year-old Cory Batey, of Nashville, bonded out Friday; Brandon Banks, of Brandywine, Md., and Jaborian McKenzie, of Woodville, Miss., both 19, bonded out previously.
