The report states that police arrived on the scene of a domestic disturbance in Knoxville on Saturday, but Mohan had already left the scene. The victim claimed that Mohan was drunk upon arriving at the residence, and tried to initiate sex. When she declined, Mohan reportedly became angry and violent. Things escalated quickly from there.
