A small, but not insignificant, detail about the incident involving Michelle Fields and Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is continuing to go unreported by the mainstream media.

Lewandowski has been charged with battery in the state of Florida, as BizPac Review reported, for allegedly grabbing Fields’ arm in the middle of a media scrum after a Trump press conference.

Despite surveillance footage from the incident that showed Lewandowski reaching for Fields and pulling her away from Trump, a U.S. Secret Service agent source told the Daily Mail that Fields was given warnings beforehand to back up.

A member of Trump’s Secret Service protection said Fields actually made contact with Trump and was warned twice not to touch him again.

“She crossed in between agents and our protectee after being told not to,” the Secret Service agent, who was present during the alleged squabble, told the Daily Mail.

But Fields ignored the warning and refused to back off which seemingly prompted Lewandowski to move her to the side of the press frenzy, according to the Secret Service source.

Now, Lewandowski is facing criminal charges of battery for tugging Fields away from Trump.
