In an alleged rape that took place in a Vanderbilt University dorm room in Nashville, Tenn., a fifth football player turned himself in Saturday after he was indicted for allegedly helping his teammates cover-up evidence in the case. 

Vanderbilt Commodores wide receiver Chris Boyd, 21, approached Nashville police, reports ABC News. The four former Commodores charged with rape are  Brandon Vandenburg, 20, of Indio, Calif.; McKenzie, 19, of Woodville, Miss.; Brandon Banks, 19, of Brandywine, Md.; and  Cory Batey, 19, of Nashville, according to USA Today.

The four are accused of raping an unconscious 21-year-old woman on June 23. They have been cut from the Commodores’ roster for next season. 

Miles Joseph Finley, 19, of Bermuda Dunes, Calif., and Joseph Dominick Quinzio, 20, of Palm Desert, Calif., are charged with tampering with evidence, according to the Nashville Police Department. Finley and Quinzio are acquaintances of Vandenburg’s and allegedly tampered with electronic evidence.
