Fort Lauderdale police are moving to take away Trump campaign adviser Brad Parscale’s guns after his arrest Sunday, according to a report.
Pascale, 44, had 10 guns in his $2.4 million waterfront home when he barricaded himself in the house with a loaded gun, prompting his wife to run to safety and have a neighbor dial 911 to report a possible suicide.
Cops recovered two shotguns, two rifles, a .22-caliber revolver and five other handguns, according to reports.
Now, police said they’ll file to take Parscale’s weapons under Florida’s Red Flag Law, which was enacted following the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, the Miami Herald reported.
“Our threat response unit detectives are in the process of submitting this petition,” Fort Lauderdale Police Sgt. DeAnna Greenlaw told the outlet.
The law permits cops or relatives to confiscate weapons if the person could present a danger to themselves or others.
Police have to file a petition with the court to confiscate the weapons, which the department said it will do.
Parscale was involuntarily hospitalized under the state’s Baker and Marchman acts.
The Baker Act allows police to hold an individual for psychiatric investigation if they pose a danger to themselves. The Marchman Act allows intoxicated individuals to be held for up to five days.
Parscale was drunk and armed when his wife, Candice, called police to the Seven Isles home Sunday. She told cops the two had been arguing when he loaded one of his guns, sending her scrambling outside.
Candice Parscale also told cops that her husband has hit her in the past.
The caught-on-video arrest shows an apparently drunk Brad Parscale eventually walk out of the house shirtless and holding a beer and is tackled by a SWAT team member and taken into custody.
Fort Lauderdale police did not immediately reply to an inquiry on whether the Red Flag Law petition had been filed.
Parscale remains an adviser on the Trump campaign.
