Report: Michelle Fields ‘Roughed Up’ By Trump Campaign Manager

Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields, a former Fox News contributor who appears Saturdays on the program Cashin’ In, says she was grabbed by Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, when Fields attempted to ask Trump a question after his news conference in Florida Tuesday evening.

Fields’ boyfriend, Daily Caller senior editor Jamie Weinstein, described the incident on Twitter:

A witness told Politico Lewandowski “forcibly grabbed” Fields on the arm, “moving her out of the way and nearly bringing her down to the ground.” The witness said Fields was “clearly roughed up.”

Breitbart News has released a statement, calling the incident “unacceptable” and demanding an apology:

“It’s obviously unacceptable that someone crossed a line and made physical contact with our reporter. What Michelle has told us directly is that someone “grabbed her arm” and while she did not see who it was, Ben Terris of the Washington Post told her that it was Corey Lewandowski. If that’s the case, Corey owes Michelle an immediate apology.” – Larry Solov, Breitbart News CEO and President
