特朗普总统’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale purportedly was taken to a 佛罗里达 hospital on Sunday by police after a brief but tense stand-off in which he barricaded himself in his home with firearms and threatened to harm himself.
英尺. Lauderdale police were dispatched to Parscale’s house after his wife, Candice, called them saying she was worried that her husband was suicidal and had firearms in the home, 根据一个 Florida Sun-Sentinel 报告.
“We went out and it was very short,” Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Karen Dietrich told the Sun-Sentinel. “We went and got him help.”
Dietrich added that Parscale did not threaten police and willingly went with law enforcement under Florida’s Baker Act – a law that allows police to detain a person who they believe is a threat to themselves or others. Parscale was taken to a local hospital.
“Politics aside, this fellow obviously suffers from emotional distress,” Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis told the Sun-Sentinel. “I’m glad he didn’t do any harm to himself or others I commend our SWAT team for being able to negotiate a peaceful ending to this.”
Shortly after the news broke, the Trump campaign released a statement saying it was “ready to support him and his family in any way possible,” while also hitting Democrats.
“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,” Trump Campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement. “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.”
帕斯卡尔（Parscale）在 2016 并被认为帮助他取得了意外的胜利. But his dismissal as campaign manager also coincided with an article in The Washington Post that portrayed Parscale as self-promoting and aloof. 它指出，他在特朗普早期的竞选广告中非常突出 — 而且工作人员抱怨他经常在家里的游泳池旁接电话.
