Arrest Report Issued for Corey Lewandowski in Michelle Fields Incident

By Mark Joyella Comment

The campaign manager for Donald Trump, Corey Lewandowski, is reportedly named in an arrest report issued by the Jupiter, Florida Police Department.

ABC News reports the charge is alleged battery.

The report comes after a former Breitbart reporter, Michelle Fields, filed a complaint with the department, claiming Lewandowski grabbed her as she tried to ask Trump a question following a news conference in Florida.

Mashable reports Jupiter Police have video that clearly shows Lewandowski grabbing Fields’ arm:

Fields’ claim–backed up by witnesses and, to an extent, video–was met with harsh criticism by Lewandowski and the Trump campaign. It also led to the resignation from Breitbart of Fields and another journalist who claimed the organization did not defend its own reporter to protect access to the Trump campaign.
