Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, has turned himself in to police and been charged with misdemeanor battery and simple assault for grabbing the arm of a Breitbart reporter at a Trump rally earlier this month.

The reporter, Michelle Fields, posted a photo of her bruises to social media and refused to back down even after Breitbart editor-at-large Joel Pollak wrote a long, and now changed, article that disputed her claims of being grabbed at the rally.

Fields, along with a few other Breitbart employees, quit their jobs as protest.

Now, however, Lewandowski admits that he did grab Fields, despite previously tweeting that she was “delusional” and that he never met her.

A video released by the Jupiter, Florida police department supports Fields’ story that she was forcibly grabbed.

In her claim, she wrote that she went to ask Trump a question as he wandered around talking to journalists, but “before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.”

Trump himself also supported Lewandowski’s claims that Fields was out of line, saying that Lewandowski is a “very decent man.”

Trump has been under fire a lot lately for sexist behavior as he tweeted a photo making fun of Ted Cruz’s wife.

Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night told Trump he had the argument “of a 5-year-old” when questioning why Trump would tweet such a thing.

On Tuesday night, Trump also confirmed he would not support another G.O.P. nominee if it isn’t himself.
