A Florida state attorney won’t prosecute GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski for battery against a former Breitbart reporter, according to Politico.

“The decision not to press charges against Corey Lewandowski is scheduled to be announced on Thursday afternoon by Palm Beach County State Attorney David Kronberg,” Politico reports. “Fields may still pursue a defamation case against Lewandowski, a source said.”

Police charged Lewandowski last month with simple battery after Fields alleged he grabbed her arm and left bruises.

“If you asked people to describe a battery, this certainly wouldn’t cut it. No injury, no damage, no nothing,” veteran criminal defense attorney David Oscar Markus of Miami told Politico. “Not every minor interaction needs to go to court. Time for everyone to chill out.”

“Jeb Bush has a better claim for battery against Trump after those debates than this reporter does against Lewandowski,” he added.

Fields took to Twitter to express dismay that she found out about the decision from news reports rather than from the prosecutor:
