Sarah Palin’s Son Arrested Again for Domestic Violence
Track Palin is at it again. He was arrested over the weekend for charges of domestic violence, this would be his second arrest in two years for those keeping count at home.
Details are still a little sparse but he was reportedly arrested on Saturday in Wasilla, Alaska. He was arraigned on 3 separate charges of felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless assault, and misdemeanor criminal mischief. The criminal mischief charge was for causing about $500 in property damage.
The oldest son of former Alaska Governor is no stranger to the law. This is his second arrest and both times involved incidents of domestic violence.
The family attorney, John Tiemessen, said that Sarah and Todd Palin did not want to make a comment on the arrest but he did say that, “They ask that the family’s privacy is respected during this challenging situation just as others dealing with a struggling family member would also request.” Tiemessen said in a statement.
As reported in 2016, Track Palin was arrested for drunkenly assaulting a woman while carrying a firearm. He was charged with three misdemeanors: assault, interfering with reporting of a domestic violence crime, and a weapons charge. A 911 call was placed to police the night of the incident by both himself and his girlfriend after an argument that they had after a night out that turned violent. The girlfriend said that Track has punched her in the face and kicked her in the knee. He plead guilty to being intoxicated while possessing a firearm.
This appears to be a pattern with this individual. Details are still forth coming about this latest incident. In the past, his mother Sarah Palin alluded to the fact that Track suffers from PTSD. At the time of his first arrest she blamed the year-long military deployment in Iraq, “My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country.”
