Donald Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, surrendered to the Jupiter Police Department in Florida after being charged with battery stemming from an incident with a reporter at a campaign event.
The alleged victim and professional reporter, Michelle Fields, filed charges against Mr. Lewandowski, alleging he pulled her arm while she attempted to ask Trump a question at an event at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida on March 8.
Under Florida law, the penalties for battery could be as much as one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
“Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge,” the Trump campaign 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.”
A video of the alleged event has been leaked to mainstream media sources and appears to show no wrong doing on the part of Mr. Lewandowski.
