Trump campaign manager Lewandowski charged with battery

Source: CNBC | March 29, 2016 |

Florida police have charged Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with simple assault in connection with an incident earlier in the month involving a reporter.

Police in Jupiter, Florida, said Lewandowski surrendered Tuesday morning to face a misdemeanor charge of battery, NBC News reported. He is scheduled to appear before a judge on May 4.

A surveillance video released by the police appears to show Lewandowski grabbing Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields as she tried to ask Trump a question during a March 8 campaign event.

The police report stated: “Lewandowski grabbed (Michelle) Fields’ left arm with his right hand causing her to turn and step back.” Fields showed police her left forearm which “appeared to show a grabbing-type injury,” according to the investigating officer.

“Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge,” Trump 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.”

    Glenn Beck reported earlier that the defense attorney hired to represent Lewandowski was himself arrested once—for biting a stripper, LOL.

    I wonder if those who are trying to excuse and minimize Lewandoski’s actions would do so if he bruised the arms of their wives, mothers, daughters, or sisters.

    That video looks a lot more forceful than the other one that initially came out, probably because you can see her struggling to keep her balance more in this one.
