Police in Jupiter, Florida issued Lewandowski a notice on Tuesday to appear before a judge on 4 May for the misdemeanour charge.

A surveillance video released by the police appears to show Lewandowski grabbing a reporter for Breitbart News as she tried to ask Trump a question during a 8 March campaign event.

The police report states, "Lewandowski grabbed (Michelle) Fields' left arm with his right hand causing her to turn and step back."

Fields showed police her left forearm which "appeared to show a grabbing-type injury," according to the  investigating officer.

Trump campaign denies all charges and says that the manager is "absolutely innocent".
