(ReliableNews.org) – America sends its regards and best wishes to President Donald Trump’s former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale and his family after hearing the news of his hospitalization.
Officials rushed Parscale to the hospital Sept. 27, shortly after police officers arrived at his residence in response to a call from his wife claiming he was armed and threatening to harm himself.

The police incident report states that Parscale grabbed a pistol and chambered a round during a heated argument with his wife, Candice. She ran to a neighbor’s house and notified police about the situation.
A brief standoff occurred between Parscale and police officers. However, a personal friend of Parscale, police officer Christopher Wilson, arrived on the scene and called Parscale on the phone and asked him to come outside and speak with him. Parscale agreed and was taken into custody once he stepped outside his house.
Parscale was immediately hospitalized for 72 hours as part of a required psychiatric evaluation for any person authorities consider a risk to themselves or others.
The rigors of the presidential campaign are well-known. As Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh stated, “Brad Parscale is a member of our family.” As Americans, we all stand ready to support him and his family through this difficult time.
