As predicted by The Last Tradition: Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski won't be prosecuted for battery over alleged reporter grab

As I wrote on March 29, 2016 on a prior post, “This case is going absolutely nowhere, let alone any kind of conviction.” 
It was an arrest that was all about politics to get Trump. 

Fox News reports Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign manager will not be prosecuted on a charge of misdemeanor battery over allegations he grabbed the arm of a reporter, the campaign confirmed late Wednesday.

Trump campaign social media director Dan Scavino posted on his Facebook page that the charge would not be pressed against Corey Lewandowski.

The decision not to prosecute Lewandowski was first reported by Politico. Palm Beach County State Attorney David Aronberg was scheduled to formally announce his decision on Thursday afternoon.

The incident occurred after a March 8 press conference at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla., where Lewandowski was accused by Michelle Fields, a reporter for Breitbart at the time, of grabbing her arm as she asked the Republican front-runner a question.

Lewandowski initially denied the incident had taken place.
