Donald Trump’s Campaign Manager, Corey Lewandowski was charged with misdemeanor battery in the case concerning former Breitbart News reporter, Michelle Fields.

CCTV corroborates Fields original story that Lewandowski grabbed her with enough force to move her.

The Palm Beach Post reported:

Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump campaign manager, was charged this morning with misdemeanor battery after allegations of forcefully grabbing a reporter at a Jupiter news conference, town police confirmed this morning.

Following a March 8 conference at Trump National Golf Club, Michelle Fields, a 28-year-old reporter formerly with the online Breitbart News Network, said she was grabbed on the arm by Lewandowski, 41, after she asked Trump a question about affirmative action.

Jupiter police later said they were looking into the incident after Fields filed a report, although investigators had not named Lewandowski.

Lewandowski turned himself in to Jupiter police just after 8 a.m., accoriding to a police report.

After the incident, Fields filed a police report. She left Breitbart News after their failure to come to her assistance.
