Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump‘s campaign manager who allegedly assaulted a former reporter for Breitbart News, was formally charged in the matter on Tuesday morning. The assault charge was brought against the 42-year-old staffer three weeks after the reported incident occurred in Jupiter, Florida, where Trump had been giving a press conference. Despite his and his boss’s continued protestations, more and more evidence suggested that Lewandowski had, in fact, violently grabbed Michelle Fields and nearly thrown her to the ground. Now it seems the authorities agree.
The Palm Beach Post first reported that police had charged Lewandowski with misdemeanor battery. The news quickly spread, and several reporters and news outlets began sharing snippets of the arrest report on Twitter.
According to the report itself, Lewandowski turned himself in to the appropriate authorities just after 8 a.m. local time.
