Track Palin left his father, Todd, bleeding after breaking into home, according to police report
The oldest son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was arraigned Sunday on domestic violence charges against his father, according to online court records and sources.
Track Palin was charged with felony burglary, assault in the fourth degree and criminal mischief for causing property damage in Wasilla, Alaska, according to court records. The criminal mischief charge was for causing $250 to $999 in property damage.
The assault charge involved father Todd Palin as “the victim” and the burglary charge stems from an incident at the home of Sarah and Todd Palin, reported by sources close to the Palin family.
The alleged incident occurred on Saturday, according to the court records, which indicated that all charges were related to domestic violence.
Track Palin was arrested after his mother called 911 and later told police her son was “freaking out and was on some type of medication,” according to charging documents obtained by the Anchorage Daily News.
The dispute was over a truck that Track wanted to take, according to the documents. His father told him no because he was allegedly drinking and taking pain medicine, the report says.
“Track told him he was (going to) come anyway to beat his ass,” wrote Wasilla officer Adam LaPointe.
His father grabbed a pistol to “protect his family,” and the two got into a fight, the report says. Track broke a window and struck his father on the head, the report says. Todd Palin broke free and suffered injuries to his face and head, was bleeding and had liquid coming from his ear.
This is the 2nd time in two years he’s been busted for similar cases.
