The Miami Herald reports:
Former Trump campaign manager Bradley Parscale was was involuntarily committed to a hospital Sunday at his Fort Lauderdale home after his wife reported that he was suicidal, according to police.
Police say officers responded just before 4 p.m. to a home north of Las Olas Boulevard that property records show was purchased last year by Parscale and his wife, Candice Parscale. Police said they were called about “an armed male attempting suicide,” according to a Fort Lauderdale police press release that identified the man as Parscale.
“When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with the reportee (wife of armed subject) who advised her husband was armed, had access to multiple firearms inside the residence and was threatening to harm himself,” the press release stated. “Officers determined the only occupant inside the home was the adult male. Officers made contact with the male, developed a rapport, and safely negotiated for him to exit the home.”
ABC News reports:
Parscale was removed as campaign manager just over two months ago in July following a lightly attended but much-hyped campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as the president was trailing in the polls.
He was replaced by then-deputy campaign manager Bill Stepien, but has stayed on as a senior adviser to the campaign.
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told ABC News in a statement tonight, “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.”
