Fifth Vanderbilt Player Indicted in Sex Assault

Chris Boyd, a star wide receiver for Vanderbilt University, now faces felony charges as he's accused of helping his teammates cover up an alleged rape in a school dorm earlier in June. CNN's Alina Machado reports.

Four other Vanderbilt football players - Brandon Vandenburg, Corey Batey, Brandon Banks and Jaborian McKenzie - were indicted earlier this month in direct connection to the alleged rape of a  a 21-year-old student. All four were subsequently dismissed from their team and suspended from school.

Metro Police Spokesperson Don Aaron describes the charges.

"He is alleged to have given certain advice to other defendants as part of an attempted cover-up." (WATCH VIDEO)
