Jupiter, Florida, police have officially issued an arrest report for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, charging the 41-year-old with misdemeanor battery of former Breitbart News staffer Michelle Fields.
Lewandowski turned himself in to Jupiter police just after 8 a.m. on Monday, according to a police report.
Fields filed a criminal compliant earlier this month after she claimed Trump's top aide forcibly yanked her away from asking Trump a question following a press conference at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort. Lewandowski aggressively denied the charges, lashing out at Fields and attacking her as "delusional" on social media in an effort to discredit the 28-year-old conservative reporter.
Fields and a couple of her fellow conservative writers were eventually forced to leave the stalwart pro-Trump media outlet after Breitbart management failed to adequately defend Fields as the Trump campaign continued to assail her character.
On Monday, Jupiter Police released closed-circuit video from Trump's resort indisputably showing Lewandowski yank Fields away from Trump:
Jupiter Police charged Lewandowski with one count of Simple Battery, for intentionally grabbing Fields against her will.
Trump campaign Hope Hicks said in a statement, “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.”
