I mean that’s as clear as it can get that he grabbed her.
Here’s a reminder about what he said:
@MichelleFields you are totally delusional. I never touched you. As a matter of fact, I have never even met you.

They’re basically saying, “who do you believe, Trump or your lying eyes?!?”
Here’s more from the Palm Beach Post:
Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump campaign manager, was charged this morning with misdemeanor battery after allegations of forcefully grabbing a reporter at a Jupiter news conference, town police confirmed this morning.
Following a March 8 conference at Trump National Golf Club, Michelle Fields, a 28-year-old reporter formerly with the online Breitbart News Network, said she was grabbed on the arm by Lewandowski, 41, after she asked Trump a question about affirmative action.
Washington Post reporter Ben Terris wrote that he witnessed the battery.
Jupiter police later said they were looking into the incident after Fields filed a report, although investigators had not named Lewandowski.
Lewandowski turned himself in to Jupiter police just after 8 a.m., accoriding to a police report.
Surveillance footage captured at Trump National, off Donald Ross Road, corroborates Feilds’ claim, the arrest report says.
Fields, who Tweeted photos of bruises on her arm she said resulted from the battery, resigned Breitbart less than a week after the incident. She cited Breitbart’s refusal to stand behind her amid the allegations as her reason for leaving.
Lewandowski replied to Fields’ Tweet, writing: “You are totally delusional. I never touched you. As a matter of fact, I have never even met you.”
Ben Shapiro, former Breitbart editor-at-large, also resigned, claiming in a prepared statement that the conservative news outlet, seen largely as supportive of Trump’s presidential bid, “abandoned” Fields “in order to protect Trump’s bully campaign manager.”
Looks like y’all got caught red-handed!!

And finally, here’s the icing on the cake of this story. Apparently Corey Lewandoski has retained the services of a lawyer that was fired from his government job after biting a stripper:

Somehow that seems incredibly fitting for the campaign that swears it loves women and will be amazing for women.
