Donald Trump’s campaign manager has been charged with simple assault for grabbing a reporter.

Florida police have charged Corey Lewandowski with misdemeanor battery for allegedly grabbing Michelle Fields, then a reporter for Breitbart. Lewandowski has reportedly turned himself in and is currently in police custody.

Trump released a statement shortly after the warrant was issued, saying that Lewandowski is “absolutely innocent” and that he will plead not guilty. Surveillance video from the Trump National Golf Club that was just released of the incident, however, appears to show Lewandowski grabbing Fields.
