Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski charged with battery for grabbing reporter
Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has been charged with simple battery of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.
Lewandowski turned himself in to police shortly after 8am on Tuesday, The Palm Beach Post reports.
The 28-year-old Fields filed charges against Lewandowski, 41, with the police department in Jupiter, Florida where the incident occurred earlier this month. Fields has said that she was forcefully grabbed and nearly thrown to the ground when she approached Trump to ask him a question. Washington Post reporter Ben Terrislater identified Lewandowski has the man who grabbed Fields.
The Jupiter Police Department later announced that they would investigate the incident but had not named Lewandowski as a suspect.
“Mr Lewandowski was issued a Notice to Appear and was given a court date. He was not arrested,” the Trump campaign said in a statement. “Mr Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge. He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated.”
After the Trump campaign downplayed Fields’ claims, she tweeted photos of her bruised arm, however, Lewandowski maintained his innocence.
Fields, editor-at-large Ben Shapiro, and several others resigned from Breitbart just days after the alleged incident.
“Today I informed the management at Breitbart News of my immediate resignation,” Fields told Politico in a statement. “I do not believe Breitbart News has adequately stood by me during the events of the past week and because of that I believe it is now best for us to part ways.”
