2 more ex-Vandy football players now in custody

NASHVILLE — Police have two more of the former Vanderbilt players in custody following their indictment on 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, while receiver Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie, 19, of Woodville, Miss., was booked Saturday morning. Vandenburg's bond is $350,000 for a total of nine charges, including tampering with evidence and unlawful photography.

Safety Cory Batey, 19 of Nashville, was arrested Friday and also is being held on $350,000 bond. Defensive back Brandon Banks, 19 of Brandywine, Md., has yet to be taken into custody.

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