Trump campaign manager charged with assault

30 March 2016, 07:34

Washington - Florida police have charged Donald Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with simple battery in connection with an incident earlier this month involving a reporter.

Police in Jupiter, Florida, issued Lewandowski a notice on Tuesday to appear before a judge on May 4 for the misdemeanour charge. A surveillance video released by the police appears to show Lewandowski grabbing a reporter for Breitbart News as she tried to ask Trump a question during a March 8 campaign event.

The Trump campaign said Lewandowski "is absolutely innocent of this charge" in a statement released on  Tuesday.

"He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court," said the statement. "He is completely confident that he will be exonerated."

A police report obtained by The Associated Press includes an interview with the report, Michelle Fields, who worked for Breitbart News at the time.

"Lewandowski grabbed Fields' left arm with his right hand causing her to turn and step back," reads the report. Fields showed police her left forearm which "appeared to show a grabbing-type injury", according to the investigating officer.
