Parscale’s wife called authorities to their Fort Lauderdale home at about 4 p.m., telling them her husband was threatening to harm himself and had access to several firearms, police said.
Fort Lauderdale police said in a statement that Parscale, who was demoted by Trump in mid-July, was the only person home at the time.
Police said they were able to talk Parscale into safely leaving his home. The 44-year-old was then taken to the hospital.
“Officers made contact with the male, developed a rapport, and safely negotiated for him to exit the home,” the Fort Lauderdale Police Department said in a statement.
Parscale, who is still a senior advisor on the Trump campaign, was removed by authorities under the state’s Baker Act. The legislation enables police to detain anybody who may harm themselves or others.
