Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was accused of grabbing the arm of a reporter during a campaign event, dodged a question on Sunday about whether he’d be willing to apologize to Michelle Fields.

{mosads}”To apologize to someone I’ve never spoken to … is a little unrealistic right now,” Lewandowski said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

Lewandowski said he’d be happy to have a conversation with the former Breitbart reporter but said he’d never spoken with her.

He also said he had tried to call Fields but never heard back.

Lewandowski said the entire incident lasted just a few seconds, noting he would have remembered the interaction if he tried to violently throw someone to the ground.

“I didn’t remember the incident,” he said. “The whole incident lasted less than three seconds. It was me moving from one location to another location.”

Authorities last week formally declined to prosecute Lewandowski on a criminal charge of simple battery.

Lewandowski said he’s happy that the Palm Beach County district attorney decided not to move forward with any charges.

“I’m happy this is behind us,” he said Sunday.

Fields is reportedly considering a civil lawsuit against Lewandowski.
