Michelle Fields has filed a police report against Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for Donald Trump.
Independent Journal Review has learned from a source familiar with the events that Fields has filed a report with the police department in Jupiter, Florida, which is the jurisdiction where the alleged incident occurred.
Detective Adam Brown of the Jupiter PD confirmed she had filed, and said they would be releasing a statement shortly.
Fields says that Lewandowski grabbed her arm when she attempted to ask Trump a question at the end of his presser following Tuesday’s election results.
After the CNN debate Thursday, Trump denied that Fields was assaulted:
Lewandowski called Fields “totally delusional” early Friday morning, claiming he never touched her and “never even met” her:
@MichelleFields you are totally delusional. I never touched you. As a matter of fact, I have never even met you.
