(Newser) – Two Santa Ana College football stars and a friend have been busted for videotaping their gang rape of an unconscious teen, according to Orange County cops. The 18-year-old victim, who was dating a friend of the men, was called to a hotel where the group was partying. The men took turns assaulting her and filming the attacks, reports the Los Angeles Times.  It's unclear why the woman was unconscious. Each man has been charged with multiple felonies.
