A dramatic police bodycam video released Monday shows Florida police officers aggressively assaulting former Trump presidential campaign leader Brad Parscale after a stalemate outside his home.

"Get on the ground, get on the ground, man," one officer barked at Parscale as they ate him outside his Fort Lauderdale home on Sunday afternoon, the video shows.

"I did nothing," an angry Brad Parscale said repeatedly in the video posted on the Fort Lauderale Police Department's YouTube page. (Warning: the video shows disturbing content.)

Parscale had come out of the house dressed only in shorts and appeared to be carrying a can of beer after initially refusing to come out.

After putting the can on the side of a truck, he said to an officer, referring to his wife, "She started saying all of this …" after being asked what happened.

At that moment, other officers stormed Parscale, grabbed him and handcuffed him behind his back as he was face down on the floor.

Police also confiscated 10 firearms, including several rifles, after officers arrested Parscale. This is according to a police report received from NBC News.

The report reveals that Candice Parscale called the police that afternoon after Brad Parscale loaded a round of ammunition into a gun held "in front of her" after "a verbal argument".

"He came out of his office and cocked a gun," says Candice on the police video.

"He's acting crazy … getting angry."

After Brad Parscale loaded the round, Candice Parscale "immediately fled the apartment and said she heard a loud bang shortly after," the report said.

Candice Parscale said she and a real estate agent who was with her "realized that Bradley didn't shoot himself when they heard Bradley frolicking around the residence and the dog barking," the report said.

"However, they were concerned that Bradley might still try to shoot himself."

Candice Parscale told police that her 44-year-old husband, who was deposed from his role as campaign leader by President Donald Trump in July and replaced by Bill Stepien, "has been depressed and suicidal recently".

Candice Parscale said "this has resulted in him consuming alcohol much more often and making suicidal statements," said an official who spoke to her.

Brad Parscale has served Trump's campaign as Senior Advisor on Digital and Data for the past several months.

Parts of a 911 call released by police later Monday showed that a realtor who showed a house on Parscale's neighborhood phones was police officers after Candice got out of the house. During the call, the agent announced that Candice had told her "she heard a shot".

"She doesn't want to go back, she's afraid that he shot himself," the broker told the 911 dispatcher.

Candice is later heard on the phone call informing the dispatcher that Parscale had a pistol loaded and was "raging and raging" before escaping the house.

"I heard a loud bang," said Candice.

When police showed up at the Parscale house on Sunday, an officer called Brad Parscale several times trying to get him to leave the house, the report said.

"However, he refused and stayed in the residence," wrote the official. "Bradley's speech was fuzzy, as if he were under the influence of an alcoholic drink and he appeared to be crying."

The police report said Brad Parscale "appeared aggressive during the negotiations in the house as he consistently (sic) spoke in a screaming and very excited tone and would not meet with officials outside his home".

During the stalemate, Parscale was spotted once by police sitting on the doorstep of his apartment drinking a beer and "talking to himself".

But he was eventually persuaded to leave the residence after crisis negotiators and a SWAT team were on site.

Police then took him to hospital under the Baker Act, a mental health law that allows involuntary admission to a health facility.

The police report said an officer noticed bruises on Candice Parscale at the scene.

One official wrote of the report, "While I was speaking with Candice Parscale, I noticed several large bruises on both of her arms, her cheek and forehead."

"When I asked how she got the bruises, (Candice) Parscale said Brad Parscale hit her," the officer wrote.

"She guessed (the bruises) occurred a few days ago during a physical altercation with Bradley that she did not report," the police report said.

Brad Parscale is 6 feet, 8 inches tall.

The 911 call from the agent who was dating Candice also suggests that the agent noticed bruises on her arms.

"Oh no, did he do that?" said the agent to Candice during the call. "Oh my god, your arms. Both your arms. Did he hurt you?"

On the subsequent police report, an officer, Candice Parscale, said "Bradley has been stressed and has been for the past two weeks
Suicide comments during the week to shoot yourself. Bradley did not make any suicide comments today, "the officer wrote.

"However, (Candice) was concerned about his safety. (Candice) recommended Bradley Drinks and he has PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)."

In a statement released ahead of the police report's release, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said Brad Parscale was "a member of our family and we all love him."

"We are ready to support him and his family in any way we can," said Murtaugh. "The disgusting, personal attacks by Democrats and angry RINOs (Republicans on behalf only) have gone too far and they should be ashamed of what they did to this man and his family."

When asked by CNBC about the allegation in Candice Parscale's police report that Brad Parscale beat her, Murtaugh said, "Our thoughts are with Brad and his family while we wait for the facts to emerge."
