Former Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields said Wednesday that she was forced to temporarily move out of her D.C.-area apartment after Fox News and BuzzFeed accidentally published her address online.

Ms. Fieldstold The Blaze that she was barraged with threatening messages after the two news outlets posted an arrest report she recently filed without redacting her personal phone number and home address.

Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was charged in Florida Tuesday with misdemeanor battery after he allegedly grabbed Ms. Fields and forcefully pulled her away from Mr. Trump after she asked the candidate a question following a Jupiter press conference. Ms. Fields and six others ended up resigning from Breitbart News over the outlet’s handling of the alleged incident.

Meanwhile, the GOP presidential front-runner has come to Mr. Lewandowski’s defense, saying Ms. Fields was reaching for him while holding something, likely a pen, that could have been a weapon. He said earlier this week that he was considering taking legal action against Ms. Fields for touching him. Mr. Lewandoski has also denied Ms. Fields‘ claims.

Ms. Fields told The Blaze that she no longer felt safe staying at her apartment and had to move out for now.

After she brought it to the attention of Fox News and BuzzFeed, the outlets removed it from their websites, The Blaze reported.
