Wife of Brad Parscale said he made suicidal comments 'throughout the week' before hospitalization, police report says

The wife of President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, told police that her husband had madesuicidal comments throughout the weekbefore he was detained and hospitalized Sunday.

Candice Parscale told Fort Lauderdale police officers she believed her husband had shot himself because he wasranting and ravingabout something and was holding a gun. She left the residence and moments later heard a gun cock and then heard what she thought was a gunshot, police reports obtained by CNN said.
She had fled the home without her cellphone or other belongings, volgens die verslag.
Police on the scene realized Parscale did not shoot himself when they heard him ranting and pacing around the residence and the dog barking frantically, according to the reports. Egter, they were concerned that he might still try to shoot himself because he was in possession of several firearms and refused to speak to negotiators or to vacate the residence, the report says.
    Later Monday afternoon, police released video of their contact with Parscale. The video shows Candice Parscale speaking to officers and telling police her husband wasacting crazy.An officer spoke to Brad Parscale on the phone and asked him to step outside the home several times. The video then showed Parscale walking out of the home and speaking to an officer, at which point another officer tackled him to the ground and handcuffed him.
    Parscale can be heard repeatedly saying, “Ek het niks gedoen nie” while on the ground.
    Candice Parscale told police that her husband drinks andsuffers from PTSD.
    Several attempts by CNN to reach representatives for Parscale have been unsuccessful.
    Parscale is hierdie somer van sy posisie afgesit ná Trump se saamtrek in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Alhoewel hy 'n senior posisie in die veldtog behou het, hy is selde binne die hoofkwartier gesien na sy degradering.
      Tim Murtaugh, die Trump-veldtog se kommunikasiebestuurder, het CNN in 'n verklaring gesê, “Brad Parscale is 'n lid van ons gesin en ons is almal lief vir hom. Ons is gereed om hom en sy gesin op enige moontlike manier te onderhou.”
