Court Approves Police Petition: Parscale Can’t Get Guns

The South Florida SunSentinel reports:

After SWAT officers tackled Brad Parscale in front of his Fort Lauderdale home Sunday, police seized all his guns. Now, city officials have been granted a request to keep his guns away from him for at least two weeks under Florida’s so-called “red flag law,” saying President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager posed a danger to himself and others.

A risk protection order — filed by the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and city of Fort Lauderdale — said Parscale, 44, poses “significant danger of causing personal injury to themselves or others in the near future.”

Police documents offer a window into the guns in Parscale’s home: 11 firearms of varying caliber, including seven handguns, and a “cache” of ammunition. Parscale does not have a concealed weapons license, according to those documents, but a license is not required to purchase, own or keep guns in your house in Florida.

The Miami Herald reports:

President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager appears to be a man in deepening emotional crisis — drinking heavily since his demotion, physically abusing his wife, brandishing guns and threatening to shoot himself or others.

That portrayal of Brad Parscale, filed in Broward County Circuit Court by Fort Lauderdale police, was enough to persuade a judge on Wednesday to sign off on temporarily confiscating a small arsenal of firearms from the aide’s multi-million dollar waterfront home.

In the petition, Fort Lauderdale Detective Christopher Carita claims the six-foot, eight-inch Parscale “poses a significant danger of causing personal injury to himself or others by having a firearm or any ammunition in his custody or control, or by potentially purchasing, possession, or receiving a firearm or any ammunition.”
