SCOTT COUNTY, VA (WJHL) -

A Church Hill man remains behind bars after his ex-girlfriend told police she was given a pill before being sexually assaulted.

Gate City investigators told News Channel 11 they were called to the Indian Path Hospital in Kingsport, TN  Sunday where the victim told police 37-year-old Scotty Bishop gave her a "diet" pill before asking her to have sex several times.

The victim said she repeatedly told Bishop "No!", but he pinned her down and raped her. The victim stated she had a reaction to the pill that Bishop had given her and had to be rushed to the emergency room.

Police said Bishop, of Church Hill, TN admitted to giving his ex-girlfriend a pill, which he claims was a sexual enhancement pill meant to arouse the victim.

Bishop was charged with rape and arrested by Kingsport police. He is awaiting extradition to Scott County, VA.
