WASILLA, Alaska — Sarah Palin’s oldest son, Track, has been arraigned on charges that he assaulted his father at the family’s home in Alaska.
Police were called to the home Saturday night, after Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee, told police her son was “freaking out” and on some type of medication, according to an affidavit by Wasilla Police Officer Adam LaPointe.
The affidavit states that Todd Palin was bleeding from cuts on his head. He told police the dispute began when Track Palin, 28, called to retrieve his truck.
Todd Palin said he told Track Palin not to come but that his son said he would come anyway to beat him up. Todd Palin told police he got his pistol “to protect his family.”
Track Palin told police he broke a window, disarmed his father and put him on the ground.

LaPointe wrote that Todd Palin and Sarah Palin had left the home when police arrived and that Sarah Palin was visibly upset.
Track Palin yelled at officers, calling them peasants, and “moved around in a strange manner” before being arrested without incident, the affidavit states.
Track Palin told police he “consumed a few beers earlier,” the affidavit states.
Track Palin was arraigned Sunday on domestic violence-related charges of burglary and assault. Court records did not immediately list an attorney for him. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing next week.
This is the second time in two years that Track Palin has been arrested in a domestic violence case.

In 2016, Palin was suspected of punching his girlfriend, who then became concerned that he was going to shoot himself with a rifle, court documents said.
He faced several charges but pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm while intoxicated and the other charges were dismissed.
His then-girlfriend later filed for custody of their child, and in January she requested a protective order against Track Palin.
Attorney John Tiemessen, who said he represents Sarah Palin, acknowledged the arrest Sunday.
“Given the nature of actions addressed last night by law enforcement and the charges involved, the Palins are unable to comment further,” Tiemessen said. “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.”
Track Palin served in Iraq for a year in 2008.
Sarah Palin indicated when her son was first accused of domestic violence in 2016 that post-traumatic stress disorder might have been a factor.

Families have personal issues, left or right, for various reasons. Those that would attack these people are both petty and shallow.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Alaska judge has approved bail with electronic monitoring for former Gov. Sarah Palin’s eldest son after he was charged with assaulting his father, Todd.
Anchorage television station KTUU reports that Track Palin’s attorney requested his bail be lowered Wednesday from $5,000.
The judge declined but allowed for electronic monitoring, a mental health evaluation and other requirements.
A police affidavit says the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee told authorities Saturday that her son was “freaking out” and on some kind of medication. Officers said Todd Palin was bleeding from cuts on his head.
The Palins obtained a court order barring Track Palin from having contact with them and their children who live with them. Todd Palin told the court by phone that the family is prepared to re-establish contact.

PALMER, Alaska — Sarah Palin’s oldest son pleaded not guilty Monday to a felony charge in the case accusing him of assaulting his father at the family’s Alaska home last month.
Track Palin’s lawyer entered the plea to a burglary charge on his behalf at his arraignment. The 28-year-old did not attend the hearing in person, but participated by phone. His parents also did not attend.

Track Palin charged with assaulting father at family home
During the brief proceeding, Palin said only, “Yes, ma’am,” when the judge asked if he was on the telephone line.
The judge set Palin’s trial for the week of Feb. 26.
Palin was arrested in December after Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee and a former Alaska governor, told authorities her son was on some kind of medication and “freaking out.”
A police affidavit said father Todd Palin was bleeding from cuts on his head. He told police the dispute began when his son called to pick up his truck from the Palins’ home in Wasilla.
Track Palin last month also not guilty to misdemeanour assault and criminal mischief. He is out on bail with electronic monitoring.
According to the affidavit, Todd Palin said he told Track Palin not to come to the house but that his son said he would come anyway to beat him up. Todd Palin told police he got his pistol “to protect his family.”
Track Palin told police he broke a window, disarmed his father and put him on the ground.
Wasilla police Officer Adam LaPointe wrote in the affidavit that Todd and Sarah Palin had left the home when police arrived and that she was visibly upset.
Track Palin yelled at officers, calling them peasants, and “moved around in a strange manner” before being arrested without incident, the affidavit says.
