Vanderbilt Football Player Lets Teammates Assault Girlfriend
Via Deadspin reports:
While Nashville police have yet to release details of a sex crimes investigation that led to the dismissal of four Vanderbilt football players, allegations are starting to emerge through other channels. Former Volunteers quarterback Erik Ainge disclosed some of those details this morning on his Tennessee Sports Radio program, and they’re ugly.
Ainge opted not to reveal any names, saying only that four players were involved and that after a night of drinking one player “allowed” the other three to rape his girlfriend. “They were out,” Ainge said, “they were drinking, boyfriend Vandy football player had sex with his girlfriend, then allowed his three teammates with him to also have sex with his girlfriend, and she did not want that to be the case.”
The case is being taken seriously enough by authorities, certainly; the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is involved and testing evidence in its crime lab.
Vandy recently suspended four football players amid a sex scandal…
Vanderbilt announced the suspension of four players for a violation of team rules, seemingly connected to a sexual assault investigation into an incident that allegedly happened at a Vanderbilt dorm, at 5:30 p.m. Eastern on a Friday. The investigation began on Wednesday. That’s SEC speed right there, boy!
Even worse: WKRN-TV reports that six other student-athletes are under investigation. It’s another ugly incident for Vandy football in 2013, after one player stabbed a teammate this April.
