The clash resulted in both bosses being issued with a notice of complaint by Scottish Football Association compliance officer Vincent Lunny.
Both men are accused of adopting "a threatening and aggressive attitude towards an opposing member of team staff" during the Scottish Premiership game which County won 2-1, while Lennon is also accused of "the repeated use of offensive, insulting and abusive language."
The pair, who were both sent to the stand during the match by referee Willie Collum, have until March 5 to respond ahead of the March 13 hearing.
The row centred on Adams' reaction to challenges made on his players by St Mirren captain Jim Goodwin.
Lennon said: "Passions rise high in a game but I would like to take this opportunity to unreservedly apologise to Derek Adams and his staff and more so, my own supporters for their manager getting into a bit of controversy with the officials and being cited for that.
"I have a lot of respect for Derek Adams and what he has achieved in the game although my words and actions didn't reflect that last Saturday.
"As far as I'm concerned it is water under the bridge and we will wait to see what the hearing brings.
"What I said, I said, so I can only apologise for that and we move on."
