Sarah Palin's son Track charged with assault in family dispute

Track Palin was arrested Saturday in Wasilla and charged with burglary assault and criminal mischief

Todd Palin told police the dispute began when his son, Track Palin, 28, called to retrieve his truck.

After that, Track allegedly disarmed Todd, knocked him to the ground, and proceeded to hit him in the head repeatedly. When authorities arrived, Todd Palin and Sarah Palin were driving away in separate cars, with Todd Palin bleeding from his face.

The records, obtained by the Anchorage Daily News, say Track Palin was "freaking out" on "some type of medication" when cops showed up at the Palin family home in Wasilla around 8:30 p.m.

When he arrived, Todd Palin allegedly confronted Track Palin at the front door with a pistol.

Track Palin was charged with felony first-degree burglary, misdemeanor criminal mischief and fourth-degree assault, the Daily News reported.

Track Palin, the oldest son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was arraigned Sunday after being arrested a day earlier on charges of domestic violence.

Last year, he was accused of punching his then-girlfriend, who feared he would shoot himself with a rifle.

He eventually surrendered, police said, and he was taken into custody. In January, she requested a protective order against him.

The offenses are alleged to have occurred Saturday in Wasilla, where Palin's mother used to be mayor. Court records did not immediately list an attorney for him.

Track Palin appears with his family at the Republican National Convention 2008 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn., on September 3, 2008.

"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 continued.

Palin's arrest on charges of domestic violence isn't his first.

Palin has another child with ex-wife Britta Hanson, whom he married-in the grand Palin tradition of godly abstinence-when she was six months pregnant and 21 years old. Track Palin was charged with domestic assault and later pleaded guilty to misconduct with weapons and possession of a weapon while intoxicated.
