Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale was hospitalized on Sunday after his wife reported that he was armed and threatening to harm himself, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
When the cops showed up at Parscale’s home in the Seven Isles community, they “developed rapport” and negotiated his exit from the house. Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Karen Dietrich said the encounter at the house was brief.
Parscale was taken to the hospital under the ‘Baker Act’ which gives authorities the power to detain someone they believe to be a threat to themselves or to others.
“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. 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,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement on Sunday.
