(CNN) — The state attorney’s office in Palm Beach County, Florida, will not prosecute Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski for battery, according to sources familiar with the case.

A former reporter for Breitbart, Michelle Fields, sought charges against Lewandowski after an incident in March where she said Lewandowski pulled her away from Trump as she was trying to ask him a question.

At the time, Trump said he thought the allegations were made up, but multiple videos of the encounter appeared to show Lewandowski pulling Fields’ arm.
