Fort Lauderdale authorities are seeking to take Trump campaign advisor Brad Parscale’s weapons after his arrest Sunday, according to a report.
Pascale, had 10 weapons in his $2.4 million waterfront home when he barricaded himself in the house with a packed gun, triggering his spouse to run to safety and have a next-door neighbor dial 911 to report a possible suicide.
Police officers recuperated two shotguns, two rifles, a.22-caliber revolver and five other pistols, according to reports.
Now, authorities 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 allows police officers or relatives to seize weapons if the owner could present a risk to themselves or others.
Police need to submit 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.
Parscale was intoxicated and armed when his spouse, Candice, called police to the Seven Isles home Sunday. She told police officers the two had been arguing when he filled one of his weapons, sending her scrambling outdoors.
Candice Parscale also informed polices that her husband has actually struck her in the past.
The caught-on-video arrest reveals an obviously intoxicated Brad Parscale ultimately go out of your house shirtless and holding a beer, to be tackled by a SWAT team member and taken into custody.
