Candice told police her husband has post-traumatic stress disorder, that he'd recently gotten violent, and she got the bruises days earlier during a prior altercation with him, according to the report.Parscale stepped down from the Trump campaign on Wednesday. "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 in a statement obtained by Politico.
Candice also denied that her husband had ever physically abused her in a statement to Politico. "The statements I made on Sunday have been misconstrued, let it be clear my husband was not violent towards me that day or any day prior," she said.The risk protection order filed by police tells a different story, describing Candice as "fearing for her life." The police report on the incident also stated otherwise. "While speaking with Candace Parscale [sic] I noticed several large sized contusions on both of her arms, her cheek and forehead," one responding officer wrote in the report. "When I asked how she received the bruising, Candace Parscale stated Brad Parscale hits her."
