Three U.S. Naval Academy Football players are being investigated for sexually assaulting a female student.

One of the players is reportedly the victim’s former boyfriend.

One of the three men was about to graduate last week, but now his graduation is on hold.

The alleged assault happened a year ago, but at the time the woman refused to file charges.

President Obama delivered last week’s commencement speech at Annapolis, and said sexual assaults threaten the trust that makes the military strong.
