The charge relates to an incident which saw Barton shown a red card in stoppage time at Adams Park on Tuesday night, when Town won 1-0.
Barton was charged with a similar offence at Bristol Rovers in December and served a one-match touchline ban.
Speaking about his red card at Wycombe, Barton said after the game: “I think the fourth official has made a mistake. He thinks he’s heard something directed towards the referee which didn’t happen.” He has until Monday to respond to the charge.
