NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

An arraignment hearing for Vanderbilt wide receiver Chris Boyd has been set for later this month after he was accused of helping cover up an alleged sex crime involving several former teammates.

Boyd is set to appear in Davidson County court on Aug. 21 at 9 a.m.

Boyd and two men from California were indicted by the Davidson County grand jury in connection with an alleged rape of a woman in an on-campus dorm room.

Boyd, 21, is charged with one felony count of being an accessory after the fact of the assault that happened June 23. He is accused of taking part in an attempted cover up of the sexual assault through his advice to certain defendants who were indicted previously.

Boyd surrendered to Metro Police on Saturday morning after his indictment, then bonded out of jail.

According to Metro Police, Boyd arrived with his father at the Criminal Justice Center where he was booked on a $25,000 bond.

Originally from Roswell, GA, Chris Boyd is on the 2013 Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the best college football wide receiver in the country.

Vanderbilt suspended him from the football team upon learning of the indictment.

In addition to Boyd, two friends of Brandon Vandenburg were indicted on felony charges.

Miles Joseph Finley, 19, of Bermuda Dunes, CA and Joseph Dominick Quinzio, 20, of Palm Desert, CA, are charged with one felony count each of tampering with evidence.

Police allege they both tampered with electronic evidence in the case.

Finley fled his home after seeing Riverside County (CA) sheriff's deputies outside his home, but he was apprehended. KMIR-TV in Palm Springs, CA, reports Quinzio has been arrested by Riverside County deputies.

They will be held as fugitives wanted by the State of Tennessee. Dozier set their bonds at $150,000 each. Both will face extradition hearings in California before returning to Nashville.
