Vanderbilt WR Boyd indicted

The SportsXchange

Chris Boyd, Vanderbilt's second-leading receiver last season, has been added to the list of players indicted as part of an investigation into a June 23 sexual assault of a Vanderbilt University co-ed in a campus dormitory, the Tennessean reported Friday.

Boyd, a redshirt junior, is charged with one felony count of being an accessory after the fact. In essence, he is accused of being part of an attempted cover-up.

Boyd's bond was set at $25,000.

Four former Vanderbilt players were originally indicted in the case: Brandon Vandenburg, Brandon Banks, Tip McKenzie and Corey Batey. They were charged with aggravated rape and aggravated assault battery.

Boyd has been suspended from the team pending further review.

Boyd caught 50 passes for 774 yards and five touchdowns for the Commodores last season. Vanderbilt went 9-4 last year.
