FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – A bizarre scene at the home of former Donald J. Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale could shed some light on why the President parted ways with his campaign manager suddenly in July. Last night, a 9-1-1 call to the Fort Lauderdale police department by a nearby real estate agent reported Parscale’s wife said she had sustained cuts and bruises from Parscale after he had been drinking, but not on that day. Candice Parscale also said her husband had threatened to commit suicide and had guns in the home.
Police arrived to see Mrs. Parscale, injured outside of her home on DeSota Drive. Pascale said the couple had argued and Brad Pascale had chambered a round into a pistol during the exchange.
“While speaking with Candice Parscale I noticed several large-sized contusions on both of her arms, her cheek and forehead,” said Detective Smith of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. “When I asked how she received the bruising, Candice Parscale stated Brad Parscale hits her. When asked if he made these markings today, she claimed he did not. I continued to ask if Brad Parscale physically assaulted her in any way today and she said no, but he did forcibly smack her phone out of her hand when she was attempting to call Brad Parscale’s father.”
Upon arrival, police apprehended the former presidential campaign manager, tackling him to the ground. Ten guns were removed from his home and he was detained pending a mental health evaluation under Florida law. A SWAT team was dispatched along with a hostage negotiator to Parscale’s home and after police asked him to come out of his home unarmed, Parscale began pacing and raving, officers said.
After exiting his home, a shirtless Parscale, carrying a beer refused to comply with officers and was tackled to the ground and taken into custody.
President Trump has not yet commented on the incident, but the incident may shed light on why the President decided to part ways this summer with Parscale.
