Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale resigned from his post on the president’s re-election team Wednesday evening, days after he was detained and hospitalized following an altercation at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Trump campaign confirmed to Fox News that Parscale had stepped down but did not immediately provide a statement on his departure.

Parscale, 44, had served a leading role in the campaign’s digital outreach efforts following his demotion from the campaign manager’s post in July.

Police officers responded to Parscale’s home on Sunday after his wife called to report that he had barricaded himself inside with multiple firearms and was threatening to harm himself.

After a short standoff, Parscale was detained and hospitalized under Florida’s Baker Act, which allows police to detain a subject if they are deemed a threat to themselves or others.

Parscale confirmed his resignation in a statement obtained by Politico, which first reported his departure.

“I am stepping away from my company and any role in the campaign for the immediate future to focus on my family and get help dealing with the overwhelming stress,” Parscale said.

    Who knows what the untold story is. I do know he was key in helping Trump get elected in 2016. I heard him speak several times at rallies. He is young and obviously talented. I hope things work out and he is able to overcome these temporary challenges.
