The ex-girlfriend of NFL referee Carl Johnson has been arrested after cops say she LIED in a police report in which she accused Johnson of domestic violence.
As we previously reported, Johnson's ex-GF had gone to cops accusing Carl of engaging in a pattern of domestic violence beginning in Dec. 2016. The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office opened an investigation into Johnson.
But now, LPSO Lt. Brennan Matherne tells TMZ Sports ... it's the GF who's in trouble now.
"The investigation is ongoing, but I can confirm we have filed charges against Sandra Brooks for Domestic Abuse Battery, Defamation, Criminal Mischief – Filing a False Police Report, and Filing a False Petition for a Protective Order."
"She turned herself in yesterday afternoon and was released after posting $2,500 bond."
