Looks like there is trouble brewing in Sarah Palin's household.
Less than a day before the former Republican Vice Presidential nominee endorsed Presidential hopeful Donald Trump, her son Track Palin was arrested for domestic violence at their family home in Wasilla, Alaska.
Track was charged with possession of a firearm, assault on his current girlfriend, and trying to interfere in the report of said domestic dispute.
The alleged event is believed to have occurred at approximately 10 pm local time on Monday January 18. A police officer responded to a 911 call originating from the Palin residence in Wasilla. In the report the officer wrote that Track Palin, who he met in the driveway, was "uncooperative, belligerent and evasive with my initial line of questioning," this according to documents from court.
Allegedly Track and his unnamed girlfriend had been arguing over her making contact with a former boyfriend. The two argued most of the day, before they returned to the Palin residence, where Track lives with his parents.
The girlfriend told a police officer that Track "struck her on the left side of her head near her eye with a closed fist," which caused her to hit the ground and then curl up, this also according to court documents.
The documents also states that Track allegedly kicked her in the left knee then proceeded to throw her phone. She ran to retrieve it then went back to the house, where Track met her with a AR-15 rifle.
Track allegedly cocked the firearm then said "Do you think I'm a p-ssy?" and "Do you think I won't do it?"
The girlfriend ran outside, going around the house until she lost Track, then went inside to hide under a bed.
Sarah Palin addressed the issue on Wednesday at a Trump Rally. "What my own son is going through, what he is going through coming back, I can relate to other families who feel ramifications of PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with," she stated. Palin added "and it makes me realize, more than ever, it is now or never for the sake of America's finest that we have that commander in chief who will respect them and honor them." she said.
Track was arraigned in the Palmer District Court, he was let out late last Tuesday when he posted $1500 in bail.
