NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -

Four former Vanderbilt football players have been indicted on five counts of aggravated rape each of an unconscious 21-year-old co-ed at a campus dormitory in June.
 
Nashville police and the district attorney sent out a release announcing the indictments Friday.
 
Safety Cory Batey, defensive back Brandon Banks, receiver Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie and tight end Brandon Vandenburg also have been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual battery for an incident tipped to campus officials by surveillance video. Vandenburg also is charged with one count of tampering with evidence and one count of unlawful photography.
 
Attorney Worrick Robinson says Batey has been taken into custody.
 
Vanderbilt dismissed the players June 29 and kicked them off campus pending the investigation by the Metro Nashville Police Department's sex crimes unit.
