Police: Brad Parscale Attacked His Wife Causing Bruising
Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale reportedly attacked his wife a few days prior to his alleged suicide threat on Sunday that saw Fort Lauderdale police involuntarily commit him to a hospital, according to Local 10.
Parscale’s wife, Candice Parscale, told police that her husband had assaulted her a few days beforehand. The police report noted “several bruises on both of her arms as well as scratches and bruising on her face.”
On Sunday afternoon, Candice Parscale called 911 and reported that her husband possibly shot himself in a suicide attempt at their home on Desota Drive in the upscale Seven Isles neighborhood.
“Candace advised after a verbal altercation, Bradley manipulated his slide to the rear loading his firearm in front of her,” the police incident report reads. (The report spelled her first name “Candace.”)
“Candace immediately fled [the] residence and stated she heard a loud bang shortly after," the incident report continued. “Candace stated that they realized that Bradley did not shoot himself when they heard Bradley ranting and pacing around the residence and the dog barking franticly. However, they were concerned that Bradley might still try to shoot himself, due to him being in possession of several firearms and refusing to vacate the residence.”
Police also reported that Parscale’s speech was slurred, he was drinking a beer, and he appeared to be intoxicated. Parscale was taken to Broward Health Medical Center under the Baker Act, “which allows anyone deemed to be a threat to themselves or others to be detained for 72 hours for psychiatric evaluation.”
Police also removed 10 guns from Parscale’s home, according to the report.
