The Vanderbilt Athletics department Wednesday notified student athletes that Tin Roof is now off-limits. Visiting the local student hot-spot will now be a violation of athletic department rules for athletes and will result in disciplinary action.
No word yet on whether this decision is related to the June 23 incident involving four former Vanderbilt football players currently under sex crimes investigation. InsideVandy contacted the Vanderbilt Athletics department Thursday at 1:00 p.m. for more information on this development and has not yet received a response.
Tin Roof was also the location of an altercation between two Vanderbilt football players earlier this year. Jacquese Kirk admitted to stabbing Justin Cabbagestalk with a pocket knife at Tin Roof on April 7. Charges were not filed in the incident.
