Donald Trump’s notoriously hotheaded campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has been arrested Tuesday morning on battery charges for assaulting Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields earlier this month.

The incident initially launched several weeks of accusations that ended with Fields and Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro leaving Breitbart altogether, resulting in a total of six staffers leaving the organization.  ABC politics has confirmed that the story is true.

On Tuesday March 8, Lewandowski reportedly grabbed Fields at a campaign event in Jupiter, Fl as she tried approaching the GOP front-runner to pose a question. When the Lewandoski and the Trump campaign denied the event, she posted photos on twitter of her bruised arm.

The Trump campaign immediately jumped to defend its manager, saying in a statement “Mr Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge. He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated.”

According to the official police report, Lewandowski turned himself in to Jupiter police just after 8AM Monday.
