A police report is revealing disturbing details from Sunday’s incident at the home of former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. Parscale was involuntarily hospitalized under a Florida law allowing police to detain anyone deemed a threat to themselves or others.
“While speaking with Candace Parscale I noticed several large sized contusions on both of her arms, her cheek and forehead,” officer Steven Smith wrote in the police report, according to the Miami Herald. “When I asked how she received the bruising, Candace Parscale stated Brad Parscale hits her.”
The Herald adds that Parscale had “racked and loaded a handgun during an argument” with his wife.
“Parscale’s wife,” whose name is actually “Candice,” “told them her husband had not hit her Sunday, but had smacked her phone out of her hand when she tried to call his father. She said she heard a gunshot from inside the house after ‘fleeing,’ but later said it might have been a car backfiring.”
Candice Parscale had called 911, telling police he “had guns and was threatening to harm himself, Fort Lauderdale police said Sunday night,” the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Police confiscated 10 guns from Parscale’s home, including rifles. Brad Parscale is listed as “Bradley” in the police report.
“Candace immediately fled [the] residence and stated she heard a loud bang shortly after,” the incident report continued, according to Local10.com, an ABC affiliate. “Candace stated that they realized that Bradley did not shoot himself when they heard Bradley ranting and pacing around the residence and the dog barking franticly. However, they were concerned that Bradley might still try to shoot himself, due to him being in possession of several firearms and refusing to vacate the residence.”
“[Parscale’s] speech was slurred as though he was under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and he seemed to be crying,” police officer Timothy Skaggs wrote in his report. “Due to his refusal [to] exit the residence on his own free will and his emotional state, crisis negotiators were requested.”
“Brad was drinking a beer and was clearly intoxicated,” officer Christopher Wilson, who is also a friend of Parscale wrote in the report.
NBC News’ Tom Winter adds Candice Parscale told police Brad has been “depressed and suicidal recently.”
According to the reports Candace told police that Brad has been “depressed and suicidal recently.” The officer added that she said, “this has led him to consume alcohol a lot more frequently and make suicidal statements.”

US Supreme Court to Trump: No We Will Not Help You Hide Your Tax Returns
The U.S. Supreme Court Monday morning refused to help former President Donald Trump protect his tax returns from investigators.
The decision means prosecutors, specifically the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, and a New York grand jury, will be able to gain access to the documents.
None of the justices noted a dissent, CNBC reports.
“Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can now require Trump’s accountants to turn over the records that the president has steadfastly refused to surrender to prosecutors or Congress.” NBC News reports, calling it “a decisive defeat” for Trump.

Arizona Man Arrested for Cursing and Yelling ‘Get a Job’ at Families Standing in Food Distribution Line
According to CBS 5 and Fox 10 Phoenix, a man in Maricopa County, Arizona was arrested on disorderly conduct charges after cursing and harassing people in line at a local school that was hosting a food distribution for struggling families.
“Maricopa County Sheriff Deputies say they were called to a food distribution event held at a Buckeye school Thursday after reports of a man, later identified as 46-year-old Ryan Bryson, who was reportedly ‘yelling obscenities and degrading remarks to members of the community who were at the school for food distribution,'” reported Emma Lockhart on Friday.
Per Fox 10, the exchange occurred within earshot of children, who heard his obscene language.
“He looked at my son and told him that his parents were pathetic and couldn’t afford to feed him. At that point, all my manners went out the window,” said one parent in the food line. Video footage of the incident show Bryson shouting, “Get a f*cking job!”

Manhattan District Attorney Hires Organized Crime, Bank Fraud, Bribery, and RICO Expert for Trump Case
The Manhattan District Attorney has hired Mark Pomerantz, a lawyer who is a nationally-known expert in organized crime, bank fraud, and RICO cases to assist in the investigation into former President Donald Trump.
The New York Times reports Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr. “has reached outside its ranks to enlist a prominent former federal prosecutor to help scrutinize financial dealings at the former president’s company.”
Pomerantz’s bio at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School reads like that of a Mafia prosecutor.
“Mark has a great deal of experience in matters involving the financial services industry,” it says, “including securities and bank fraud, mail and wire fraud, RICO and FCPA violations, tax offenses and bribery.”
He’s also won an award “for Excellence in White-Collar Crime and Government Investigations,” and served as “a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, and headed the Criminal Division in that office during 1997-1999.”
Vance’s investigation into Trump, the Times adds, “is focused on possible tax and bank-related fraud, including whether the Trump Organization misled its lenders or local tax authorities about the value of his properties to obtain loans and tax benefits.”
