The former President’s Trump’s Campaign Manager Brad Parscale was taken to Florida hospital on Sunday after he threatened to harm himself.
Ft. Lauderdale police said, his wife, Candice called them, saying she is worried her husband was suicidal and held firearms in the home.
“We went out and it was very short, we went and got him help,” Fort Lauderdale police chief Karen Dietrich told the Sun-Sentinel.
Dietrich added, “Parscale did not threaten police and willingly went with law enforcement under Florida’s Baker Act, a law that allows police to detain a person who they believe is a threat to themselves or others. Parscale was taken to a local hospital.”
“Politics aside, this fellow obviously suffers from emotional distress, I’m glad he didn’t do any harm to himself or others. I commend our SWAT team for being able to negotiate a peaceful ending to this,” Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis told the Sun-Sentinel.
Police Sgt.DeAnna Greenlaw said “police were called to the home around 4p.m.”
Candice, Parscale wife had called the police to their home after her husband showed signs of emotional distress, according to Trantalis. She claimed he had weapons in the house that he had threatened to use.
However, after the incident, the Trump Campaign released a statement saying they support him and his family.
“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,” Trump Campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh said.
“The disgusting, personal attacks from democrats and disgruntled RINOs have gone too far, and they should be ashamed of themselves for what they’ve done to this man and his family,” he added.
