Lawsuit Claims Former Vols Player Drae Bowles Beaten Up by Teammates For Helping Rape Victim

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, a federal lawsuit filed in Nashville claims that former Vols receiver Drae Bowles was beaten up twice by his teammates in 2014, for assisting a woman that accused Tennessee football players A.J. Johnson and Michael Williams of rape.
Bowles later left the team and transferred to Chattanooga.
That was one of the allegations in a lawsuit filed by six female UT students that claims the University created a ‘hostile sex environment’ through a policy of indifference towards sexual assaults by UT athletes.
Athletic director Dave Hart, football coach Butch Jones, and chancellor Jimmy Cheeks were named in the suit.
One portion of the lawsuit claims Bowles was assaulted the day after taking the alleged victim to the hospital, and athletic coaches were said to have witnessed that assault.
