Cops seize weapons from ex- campaign manager Brad Parscale's home

Cops seized an array of weapons from Brad Parscale’s home last night, DailyMail.com can reveal.

The demoted aide had ten firearms at his Fort Lauderdale mansion, according to police records released after Sunday afternoon’s standoff.

Uniformed and plain clothed officers entered the waterfront properly around 4:30pm and emerged carrying an assortment of boxes. One had a diagram of a rifle on the side and was marked: ‘This is evidence.’

Parscale’s parents Rita and Dwight spent a few minutes at the house earlier Monday before driving away in his truck. His wife Candice didn’t appear to be home all day and did not respond to requests for comment.

Police raced to Parscale's Fort Lauderdale, Florida home Sunday afternoon after Candice fled screaming into the street in just her bikini - before telling a passerby: 'I think my husband just killed himself.' The Good Samaritan bundled Candice into her car and dialed 911.

As many as 20 police cars and boats swarmed the waterfront property after the distraught wife told cops she heard a revolver being cocked and a 'loud boom' after her 44-year-old husband began 'ranting and raving'.

Candice, 41, then buried her head in the stranger's lap and sobbed uncontrollably until officers revealed he was still alive and asked for his cell number so they could begin negotiations.

Police dispatch records reveal marksmen could see into the $2.4 million property where Parscale sat shirtless on the floor with his dog, drinking beer and 'talking to himself'. 

The witness, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, told DailyMail.com she also noticed evidence of bruising on Candice's upper arms.

Further reports made public on Monday confirmed Candice had revealed injuries to officers and told them she suffered them in an 'altercation' with her husband of four years, adding that he hits her.  

The chaotic scene ended without tragedy about an hour and a half later when  police body cam footage showed Parscale being tackled by a SWAT officer after he ignored five demands to 'get on the ground'.

Parscale was then involuntarily committed to a hospital by Fort Lauderdale police.

Brad Parscale's wife begs for help in 911 audio, saying her husband is 'pissed with the world'

Brad Parscale's wife begs for help in 911 audio obtained by DailyMail.com, revealing her demoted aide husband is 'pissed with the world'.

A passerby begins Sunday afternoon's call by saying she is in the street with Candice Parscale 'who thinks her husband has shot himself inside their house and she does not want to go back inside.'

As the caller explains what's going on, Candice cuts in to say: 'He cocked a handgun so I came out to the front.'

The caller is heard trying to console Candice, saying, 'it's ok, its ok, take a deep breath.'

Recovering her composure, Parscale's wife tells the operator: 'I was sitting in the back yard enjoying the weather.

'He, he is under a lot of stress right now, and he is pissed at the world and so he like walked out, cocked the handgun, ranting and raving about something, I don't know what.

'So I was like, OK, just chill. Stop. And then I got nervous and I went and I was sitting in the front yard, thinking, something is not right. And I saw him looking out the front window and I heard a loud, a loud noise … I heard a loud boom. Ten minutes ago.'

Asked what kind of weapon he was holding she replies: 'It was some sort of revolver, handgun, like a Glock, I don't know.'

The call then captures a conversation in which the passerby quizzes Candice about her injuries, asking her: 'Oh no, did he do that? Oh my gosh your arms, both your arms. Has he been hurting you?

The response is not audible.

The president announced in July he was replacing Parscale with longtime political aide Bill Stepien. 

Well-placed sources told DailyMail.com Parscale is under investigation for the theft of campaign funds. 

A police report obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com reveals that Parscale had ten weapons inside the home, including two rifles, two shotguns, five handguns and a small revolver. 

The witness, who just happened to be driving by the swank home, said: 'I was on the phone to a friend when I noticed this woman coming towards me with virtually nothing on, just her bathing suit.

'She knocked on the window and says, I think my husband just killed himself. I said, ''Oh my God. Oh my God, come get in my car'' and I hung up on my friend and dialed 911.

'She was hysterical, she was hyperventilating, she nearly collapsed but I caught her and pulled her into the vehicle. 

'She had her head in my lap and she was just sobbing. I was just trying to keep her calm.

'When she was in the car and we were on hold, I saw both her arms had bruises. She is just a tiny thing. She seemed so sweet and distraught.'

As the two women huddled in the vehicle, cops surrounded the property, stationing marksmen with shields in front of the driveway while approaching from the rear on boats.

A video obtained by DailyMail.com reveals Candice, by now wrapped in a white towel, peering over a line of police cars as officers call up her husband's cell and negotiate his surrender.

'The police presence was huge, they were being extra protective in case he started shooting. Once he answered the phone they knew he was alive,' the Good Samaritan said. 

'I didn't see him come out of the house because they made everyone stand so far back. But it was over quickly, maybe an hour and a half to two hours. The police were very calm, very professional.

'The wife was sat on a gurney for a while and she seemed to calm down. 

'There had clearly been some stress for a while and she just seemed relieved it was over. Her husband has got a lot going on, he's a mess.'

A insider told DailyMail.com that Parscale went into a tailspin after he was demoted in July and replaced by his former number two, Bill Stepien.

It was widely reported that the President lost faith in Parscale after a much-trumpeted campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma drew a dismal crowd, relegating him to his previous role in digital and data strategy.  

The well-placed source said that just days later ordered an audit of the spending of the Republican National Committee.

The probe appeared to be geared towards examining Parscale's handling of the campaign's money, the source said, putting the 6ft 8in aide
