SEC defender suspended indefinitely after arrest on domestic aggravated assault charges

Disturbing news out of Knoxville.

Former Michigan Wolverine and current Vols linebacker William Mohan was reportedly arrested following an incident in South Knoxville Sunday. Reports indicate Mohan faces a charge of domestic aggravated assault and has been suspended from the Volunteers’ football team.

Mohan was a 3-star recruit out of Erasmus Hall in Brooklyn, NY in the 2020 class. He only played one game for Michigan before transferring to Tennessee after the 2020 season. Mohan has appeared in 12 games with the Volunteers, mostly on special teams.

“We are aware of the recent arrest of football student-athlete William Mohan. He was immediately suspended indefinitely from all team activities,” a university spokesperson said in a statement according to

WVLT obtained a police report from the Knoxville Police Department that details a very disturbing incident:

KPD officers spoke with the victim, who told police she had invited Mohan over, but she realized he was drunk when arrived. She told officers she rushed him to her room so her roommates would not wake up.

Mohan reportedly began to initiate sex with the victim, and when she said no, he reportedly began calling her derogatory terms.

Mohan became angry and used one hand to grab her face and the other to choke the victim, the report stated. The victim told police that Mohan reportedly choked the victim by grabber her and pulling her towards him.

The victim told police she screamed, escaped Mohan’s grasp and grabbed an iron from her desk, asking Mohan to leave. The report stated that he refused, and the victim went into the kitchen to grab a kitchen knife.

When the victim returned to the bedroom with a knife in hand, she told Mohan to leave again. The report stated that Mohan walked up to her and used one hand to grab her throat and the other to take the knife away.

Clearly, this is a disturbing situation involving serious legal trouble for Mohan.
