Donald Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with battery Tuesday following an incident in which he allegedly grabbed a reporter, Michelle Fields, at a campaign event earlier this month. 

Lewandowski turned himself in to police Tuesday morning in Jupiter, Florida, where he was charged with misdemeanor battery. 

Trump and Lewandowski have repeatedly denied that the campaign manager grabbed Fields, and Lewandowski called Fields "delusional."

Fields released a photo of her arm with bruises in the shape of a hand. And newly video released by Jupiter Police clearly shows Lewandowski reaching over and roughly grabbing FIelds, nearly throwing her off balance.

Fields resigned from Breitbart News shortly after the incident, because she said the news outlet failed to publicly stand by her. 

The Trump campaign responded to the charges Tuesday morning, telling reporters that Lewandowski will plead not guilty and fight the charges. 


The charges represent the latest chapter in a presidential campaign that has been marked by unprecedented incidents of violence, including attacks against reporters and protesters.
