The former top manager of President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, Brad Parscale, was taken to a hospital Sunday after his wife reported that he was armed and threatening to harm himself, authorities said.
Greenlaw said Parscale was the only person home at the time. Police took him to a hospital under the Baker Act, Greenlaw said. The mental health law allows for involuntary and voluntary admittance.
Additional details were not immediately available.
“We are ready to support him and his family in any way possible,” Murtaugh said.
Trump announced in July that he was replacing Parscale, who had been running his re-election campaign for more than two years, with deputy campaign manager Bill Stepien.
The move came after Parscale said millions of tickets had been sold for a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June. But the event drew a far smaller crowd than anticipated.
Parscale remained on the campaign as a senior adviser for digital and data.
