After she called authorities, Johnson went back into the home and the woman gathered their three children and waited outside for police to arrive.
When police spoke with Johnson, he gave a similar account provided by his girlfriend, only that he was the victim of the physical abuse, according to the affidavit.
The officer noted that Johnson showed no visible signs of being upset and had only a scratch on his collar bone, which he said he received from his girlfriend throwing him off the home’s porch.
Johnson was arrested at the home and taken to the Michael L. Becher Adult Correctional Complex.
He was later charged in Clark County Circuit Court No. 3 with domestic battery and intimidation, both class D felonies.
A $1,000 bond was posted for his release Monday.
Johnson is scheduled to return to the court for a pretrial conference on June 18.
