Tennessee suspended linebacker William Mohan after he was arrested by police in Knoxville, Tennessee, in connection to an alleged domestic disturbance.

"We are aware of the recent arrest of football student-athlete William Mohan," a spokesperson for the school said, per Mike Wilson of the Knoxville News Sentinel. "He was immediately suspended indefinitely from all team activities."

According to Wilson, police arrived Sunday morning at around 6 a.m. ET at an apartment belonging to a woman who said Mohan "was aggressive verbally and physically during the encounter."

The woman told authorities she invited Mohan and discovered he was intoxicated. Wilson provided more details:

"Mohan attempted to initiate sex, but the woman denied his advances and he became angry, she told officers.
"The report says Mohan called the woman derogatory names and grabbed her face and began choking her. She said she demanded Mohan leave, but he stood on the bed and refused to go."

Per ESPN's Chris Low, the woman subsequently went into her kitchen and took a knife, at which point Mohan allegedly "grabbed her by the throat with one hand and took the knife away with his other hand."

Mohan left but returned to the residence and knocked on the door until he was let in. He passed out in the living room.

Mohan has been charged with felony aggravated domestic assault.

In his first season with the Volunteers, the Brooklyn, New York, native recorded nine tackles in 12 appearances. He transferred to Tennessee from Michigan following his freshman year in 2020.
