But Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway tells CNN it will not affect his future with the campaign. But Alexandra Preate, a spokeswoman for Bannon, said police never interviewed Bannon, who is on leave from the conservative news site Breitbart.
Hillary Clinton's campaign denounced Breitbart News as "anti-Semitic" while criticizing Trump's hiring of Bannon, calling to memory a report by a Breitbart writer that referred to Weekly Standard editor William Kristol as a "renegade Jew".
Police say the report was made available to Politico by mistake. The documents reviewed by the AP were part of a request for Bannon to pay $25,000 in legal fees and to cover the $64,000 in tuition it cost to send both girls to The Archer School for Girls for the 2007-08 school year. In the police report, the then-wife claimed that during an argument on New Year's Day about finances, she spat at Bannon and he "reached up to her from the driver's seat of his auto and grabbed her left wrist". When they were visiting other private schools in 2000, she said Bannon questioned one director over the Hanukkah books in the school library. "I said no and asked why he asked. he did not respond".
"He pulled her down, as if he was trying to pull [her] into the auto, over the door", the report said, adding that Bannon also "grabbed at [her] neck" and that she slapped his face to free herself. Police responded to the incident, during which Bannon reportedly attacked Piccard in the driveway of their Santa Monica, California, home, after he threw a telephone against a wall and left it shattered while she was calling 911.
Stephen Bannon, the chief executive of Trump's election campaign, has an active voter registration at the house in Miami-Dade County, Florida, which is vacant and due to be demolished to make way for a new development.
According to a statement from Bannon's spokesperson, quoted in the Politico article, "The bottom line is he has a great relationship with the twins, he has a great relationship with the ex-wife, he still supports them".
The New York Times and The New York Post made the revelation on Friday, saying, indictments were issued for Steve Bannon but the case ended when his wife, Mary Louise Piccard, failed to appear to testify against him in court regarding charges of domestic violence and battery.
Bannon's defense attorney, Steven Mandell, said, "No comment on the record".
