Four former Vanderbilt players who were dismissed from the team in June have each been charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of sexual battery, The Tennessean reports. 

Brandon Vandenburg, Brandon Banks, JaBorian McKenzie and Corey Batey are said by police to have raped an unconscious woman in Vandenburg's dorm room June 23. The players were dismissed from the team by head coach James Franklin on June 29.

Vandenburg, 20, has also been charged with one count of tampering with evidence and one count of unlawful photography. Banks and Batey are 19 years old, while McKenzie is 18. Batey has already been arrested.

From the Tennessean:

Police first got word (of the incident) after university officials checked a hallway security camera in an unrelated incident and saw suspicious behavior by the four.
