Johnson denied anything had happened in an interview with a West Virginia state trooper, according to court records.
On Oct. 15, Johnson, with an attorney present, agreed to a second interview in which he changed his story, court records said.
Johnson told the investigator that the woman had offered to have sex with him, court records said.
Johnson was arrested on Oct. 16 in magistrate court.
Johnson has been free on $10,000 bond. He resigned from the police department after being charged in October.
Johnson could not be reached for comment.
At the magistrate court hearing, investigators said Johnson told them that as he was driving the woman home, she pulled up her shirt and asked him if he liked what he saw.
The investigators testified Johnson said the woman then grabbed his crotch and performed oral sex on him.
Charles Town Police Chief Mike Aldridge said he's made officers more accountable since he took over the department earlier this year.
"I've made it very clear that I would not tolerate that kind of thing," Aldridge said.
Officers are now more closely scrutinized by their supervisors, Aldridge said.
"Any time you have a police officer put in the public eye and accused of something like that, it hurts the police force and everyone on it," Aldridge said.
