Bradley Parscale, the former campaign manager for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, was hospitalized Sunday after his wife told police he was threatening to harm himself, ABC News reported.
The Fort Lauderdale, Florida Police Department confirmed in a statement that a man identified as Parscale was arrested after receiving a report from his wife.
“The officers contacted the man, developed a relationship and negotiated safely to get him out of the house,” the department said in a statement. They didn’t directly identify him as Trump’s former campaign manager, but a title deed identifies the co-owner of the property as Candice Parscale, the same name as the former campaign manager’s wife.
On the spot, police spoke to Parscale’s wife, who told them her husband was “armed, had access to multiple firearms in the residence and threatened to harm himself,” the statement said.
Parscale was downgraded by Trump’s July re-election bid after the president fell short of former Vice President Joe Biden in polls. He internally blamed a botched rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June that drew an overwhelming crowd and led to a subsequent coronavirus outbreak.
“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 we can,” said Tim Murtagh, a Trump campaign spokesman, in a statement without explicitly acknowledging the incident to confirm.
