Donald Trump’s former manager, Brad Parscale, has been hospitalized after ‘barricading himself in his home and threatening to shoot himself’ local police say.
On Sunday afternoon September 27, Police were called to a Fort Lauderdale home owned by Bradley and his wife, Candice Parscale.
According to reports, his wife allegedly called the police worried that Brad was suicidal and had firearms.
According to Police Chief Karen Dietrich the encounter between police and Parscale was brief. “We went out and it was very short. We went and got him help,” Dietrich said.
She added that Parscale did not threaten police and was willingly detained before being taken to hospital.
Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis told the Sentinel that he received a message saying there was a SWAT team at Parscale’s house as at Sunday.
“It was indicated to me that he had weapons,” the Mayor said.
In a statement released Monday morning, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said;
“Brad Parscale is a member of our family and we all love him. We are ready to support him and his family in any way possible.”
