Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will not be prosecuted for battery against ex-Breibart reporter Michelle Fields, a Florida prosecutor has decided, sources told multiple media outlets.

Palm Beach County State Attorney David Aronberg was scheduled to announce the decision at a Thursday afternoon press conference, according to Politico, the outlet that first reported the news.

Fields had alleged that Lewandowski committed simple battery against her when he grabbed her arm at a March press conference. She later posted a photo of her bruised arm and police obtained surveillance camera footage of the incident.

Fields reacted to the news with a tweet, writing that she was disappointed the news was leaked to the press before she had been informed of the prosecutor's decision.

Sources also told NBC that the state attorney attempted to get Lewandowski to publicly apologize to Fields, but it was unclear if he ever agreed.

Throughout the incident, Trump has firmly stood by Lewandowski, characterizing Fields as a possible liar and questioning whether the bruises on her arm were from the incident.

Fields, along with several of her colleagues, left Breitbart as a result of the incident. She has since received numerous death threats, prompting her to abandon her apartment. One of the threats, which TheBlaze obtained audio of, is being investigated by the authorities.
