Sarah Palin’s son, Track Palin was arrested at his Wasilla home yesterday after police responded to a call regarding an incident between Track and a female acquaintance that occurred on Friday night. Track was accused of fourth degree domestic assault toward the unidentified female who told police that he hit her and tried to prevent her from reporting the assault by taking her phone.
As usual, Track allegedly resisted arrest and was combative with police according to reports.
Palin was arrested on misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree domestic-violence assault, interfering with the report of a domestic-violence crime, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
Palin has a history of domestic violence arrests. He was arrested in 2016 for punching and kicking his girlfriend in the head. He also tried to prohibit her from calling the police according to the police reports. He was drunk and belligerent at the time of arrest and his girlfriend was found injured cowering under a bed after he was arrested. She claimed that Track had a gun and was threatening suicide.
Last December, he was allegedly drinking and on pain killers when he be broke into the family home and attacked his father. That case was moved to Anchorage’s Veterans Court, an alternative court program for veterans focused on rehabilitation, accountability and treatment, rather than jail time.
He’s being held without bail at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility, the same place he was held during the 2016 case. It is unlikely that this case will be eligible for Anchorage’s Veterans Court as it appears he is not participating in the veterans court’s rehab program. The assault case against his father remains open and this arrest could cause it to be sent back to the Palmer court system.
Track’s sister Bristol will be joining the cast of Teen Mom OG this season.
