Former Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Erik Ainge, who now hosts a show on Tennessee Sports Radio, revealed this morning that a Vanderbilt football player under investigation for sex crimes “allowed” three teammates to rape his girlfriend.
Earlier this month, The Tennessean reported that sex crimes detectives and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation were investigating four Vanderbilt players, who had been kicked off the team for a violation of team rules.
This morning, Ainge provided what he said was “very reliable information” about the alleged crime.
“It is four football players, one of whom had a girlfriend — girlfriend victim,” he explained. “The four players, that girl were out, they were drinking.”
“They went back, boyfriend, Vandy football player, had sex with his girlfriend and then allowed his three drunk teammates with him to also have sex with his girlfriend — and she obviously did not want that to be the case.”
Ainge said that he was not given any names of the football players or the victim.
