Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, has stepped aside from his role in the campaign days after he was detained at his Florida home and taken to a hospital, a campaign official said on Wednesday night.

Parscale was taken into custody on Sunday after Fort Lauderdale police responded to a 911 call indicating he had barricaded himself inside the house and perhaps had fired a gun. The police said his wife told them that he had threatened to harm himself.
