Police in Jupiter, Florida, also released video they say clearly shows Lewandowski grabbed Fields, something he has denied:

The Palm Beach Post reported:

Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump campaign manager, was charged this morning with misdemeanor battery after allegations of forcefully grabbing a reporter at a Jupiter news conference, town police confirmed this morning.
