Fort Lauderdale police on Monday released body camera footage showing President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, being tackled and arrested outside his home on Sunday.

His wife, Candice Parscale, called the police on Sunday, saying her husband had loaded a firearm and threatened to hurt himself,   according to a police report obtained by Business Insider .

After a prolonged standoff, Brad was taken into custody and hospitalized under Florida's Baker Act, which allows individuals to be involuntarily hospitalized if they're believed to pose a threat to themselves or others.

The three-minute video shows Candice standing outside the couple's house in a bathing suit and wrapped in a towel, telling Officer Timothy Skaggs that she fled the house in fear and later heard what sounded like a gunshot come from inside the home.

"He's acting crazy, so I went outside to the backyard and let him just chill out," she said in the video. "And he was just going irate. And he came out of his office, cocked a gun, went back and I was like, 'OK, this is f---ed up,' and so I went to the front yard."

Skaggs spoke with Brad on the phone, urging him to "come outside with no weapons," according to the body cam video. Brad initially refused to do so.

Later in the video, Brad, who is about 6-foot-8, came out of his house, shirtless and carrying a beer. He approached another officer who he's reportedly friendly with and said, "Listen, I'm not trying to kill myself. She's lying. I'm your friend."

Shortly after, several other officers approached Brad, repeatedly telling him to "get on the ground." When he made no immediate moves to do so, two officers tackled him with what the police report described as a "double leg take down."

Brad repeatedly said, "I didn't do anything," as the officers rolled him onto his stomach, handcuffed him, and helped him back to his feet.

Candice told officers that her husband had post-traumatic stress disorder and had been violent and threatened to harm himself in recent weeks, per the police report.

Law enforcement seized 10 firearms — two shotguns, a .22 caliber revolver, five handguns, and two rifles — from the Parscale residence, according to the report.

Police also reported that Candice had several bruises on her face and body, which she said were the result of her husband assaulting her days before. She did not report that assault at the time.

"While speaking with Candace Parscale [sic] I noticed several large sized contusions on both of her arms, her cheek and forehead," Detective Steven Smith wrote in a report on the incident. "When I asked how she received the bruising, Candace Parscale stated Brad Parscale hits her."

Police reported that Brad smelled of alcohol. He is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Broward Health Medical Center and has not been charged with any crimes.

Brad   was removed   from his position as Trump's reelection campaign manager in July, reportedly over campaign spending concerns, and was replaced by then-deputy campaign manager Bill Stepien. He's stayed on the team as an advisor.

So after the standoff he comes out with a beer in hand and says 'he didn't do anything'?

meh, look for incidents like this to be a common occurrence, starting in about 5 weeks. the sudden realization among inner circle members of the failed 4th reich that their fuhrer would readily throw any one of them under the bus, because he can't face his own short comings, is a bitter pill to swallow.

Is it wrong of me to take great pleasure of them taking this trumpturd supporter down?  Tackling him?  As he repeatedly says 'I didn't do anything?"

If you had bothered to read the article, you would have seen the obvious.  

What additional evidence do you need?

You have to wait for a trial and conviction or it is a accusation he is innocent till proven guilty in this country still.If he did hit his wife he should go to jail.

You really don’t know a accusation doesn’t make you guilty and we have a system that you are innocent till proven guilty?

So she's lying?

At least on paper that is true.  Reality is quite different, and the lawyer doesn't issue refunds regardless of the outcome.

Parscales losses are just starting.

Sure it does, but I hope you never find yourself in the position where you understand what I mean.
