Former Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale Hospitalized After Being Armed and Threatening to Harm Himself

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Sun Sentinel) — A tense situation unfolded at a home owned by Brad Parscale, the former campaign manager for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, after his wife called police to say that Parscale had guns and was threatening to harm himself, Fort Lauderdale police said Sunday night.

Police were called to a home in the 2300 block of Desota Drive in the Seven Isles community of Fort Lauderdale on Sunday afternoon. Records show that the home is owned by Bradley and Candice Parscale.

Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Karen Dietrich said the encounter at Brad Parscale’s home was brief.

“We went out and it was very short. We went and got him help.”

Dietrich said he didn’t threaten police and he went willingly under Florida’s Baker Act, which allows police to detain a person who is potentially a threat to himself or others. He was taken to a hospital, she said.

His wife contacted police, worried that he was suicidal and had firearms.
