Early in 2012, the University of Montana investigated several sexual assault allegations, some of which included football players. The rape charge against Johnson is a result of an incident from last February

Back in March of 2012, Johnson had a temporary restraining order taken out against him by a Montana student who alleged that he sexually assaulted her.
