Charges mark Track Palin’s second domestic-violence arrest in not quite two years…
(Anchorage Daily News) PALMER — Track Palin, the 28-year-old son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was arrested on assault and burglary charges after he repeatedly hit his father, Todd Palin, at the family home in Wasilla on Saturday, charging documents say.
The charges mark his second domestic-violence arrest in not quite two years.
Wasilla police came to the Palin home Saturday after Sarah Palin called just after 8:30 p.m. to say her son was “freaking out and was on some type of medication,” according to a sworn affidavit filed in court by Wasilla officer Adam LaPointe.
Track Palin came to the house to confront his father over a truck he wanted to pick up, according to the affidavit.
Todd Palin told his son not to come because he’d been drinking and taking pain medication.
“Track told him he was (going to) come anyway to beat his ass,” LaPointe wrote.
Todd Palin told the officer he got his pistol to “protect his family” and met his son with the gun when he came to the door, according to the affidavit.
Track Palin broke a window and came through it, and put his father on the ground, the report states. He began hitting him on the head.
Todd Palin escaped and left the house. He suffered injuries to his face and head, the officer wrote. He was bleeding from several cuts on his head and had liquid coming from his ear.
As police arrived, they saw two vehicles leaving the home: Todd Palin was in the first, and officers could see blood running down his face, LaPointe wrote…
