Two ex-Vandy players taken into custody

NASHVILLE — A former Vanderbilt football player has been released on bond, while two others remained in jail charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery involving an unconscious student at a campus dormitory in June.

Brandon Vandenburg, 20, of Indio, Calif., was booked into the Davidson County jail early Saturday morning with bail set at $350,000 for nine charges, including tampering with evidence and unlawful photography.

Jaborian “Tip” McKenzie, 19, of Woodville, Miss., was booked and released Saturday on $50,000 bond.

Cory Batey, 19 of Nashville, was arrested Friday and bond set at $350,000. Brandon Banks, 19 of Brandywine, Md., had yet to be taken into custody late Saturday afternoon.

Authorities announced the indictments Friday. Vanderbilt dismissed the players from the team June 29.
