Video released by Jupiter, Fla., police shows an encounter between a reporter and Donald Trump’s campaign manager, who has been charged with battery.
Prosecutors in Florida will not file a formal battery charge against Donald Trump’s campaign manager, who was accused of grabbing a reporter’s arm in Florida last month, according to a person familiar with the case.
The campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, 42, was charged with battery after police in Jupiter, Fla., reviewed a video that shows him grabbing the arm of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields as Trump walks through a crowd at the Trump National Golf Club.
Palm Beach County State Atty. Dave Aronberg was scheduled to announce the decision Thursday afternoon, according to Politico, which first reported the development. The prosecutor’s decision was confirmed by a person who was not authorized to discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.
