    A Lake County Sheriff’s deputy faces two felony charges for sexually assaulting a woman while armed in Wisconsin.

    Jack Johnson, 36, was arrested Wednesday by Twin Lakes police and is charged with felony false imprisonment while armed and attempted second degree sexual assault while armed, according to a news release.

    Johnson harassed the woman, showed up at her workplace and exposed himself to her, the release said. 

    According to Kenosha News:

    The woman said Johnson repeatedly asked her to kiss him and promised to leave if she just “gave him what he wanted.”

    After suggesting a coin toss to settle the matter -- "heads he gets what he wants, tails he’ll leave me alone," the woman told police -- but finding he had no coin, Johnson allegedly suggested a game of rock, paper, scissors, then said he’d leave the woman alone if she hugged him, the complaint says.

    Johnson then admitted to "stalking me for months," the woman said, including stopping at the store for weeks to try to see her; she was not there.

    The woman filed an internal complaint with the sheriff’s office and Johnson was arrested Tuesday afternoon at his home in Genoa City, Wisconsin.

    Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran said Johnson has been placed on unpaid leave and the department is moving to have him fired.

    All of Johnson’s sheriff’s office equipment, including his badge, firearm, and ID, has been confiscated.

    If convicted, he faces nearly 20 years in prison.
