Ex-Trump adviser Brad Parscale 'hospitalized after barricading himself in home & threatening to self-harm': local cops

EX-Trump adviser Brad Parscale was allegedly hospitalized after barricading himself in his home and threatening to shoot himself, according to local police.

Police were called to a Fort Lauderdale home owned by Bradley and Candice Parscale on Sunday afternoon.

However, Police Chief Karen Dietrich told the Sun Sentinel that the encounter was brief.

"We went out and it was very short. We went and got him help," Dietrich said.

She added that Parscale did not threaten police and was willingly detained before being taken to hospital.

His wife allegedly called the cops worried that he was suicidal and had firearms.

Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis told the outlet that he received a message saying there was a SWAT team at Parscale's house.

"It was indicated to me that he had weapons," the Mayor said.
