Sarah Palin’s oldest son has been arrested and is awaiting trial on domestic violence charges, local NBC affiliate in Anchorage, Alaska is reporting.
According to court records, “Track Palin, 28, faces a Class B Felony charge of first-degree burglary, one charge of assault in the fourth degree, and one charge of criminal mischief in the fourth degree,” KTUU News reported Sunday. He’s being held at Mat-Su Pre-Trial facility in Palmer, Alaska.
This isn’t Palin’s first run-in with the law. in 2016, he was arrested for hitting his girlfriend in the face and kicking her in the leg before threatening to kill himself with an assault rifle – all while intoxicated.
After that incident, Sarah Palin seemed to blame President Obama for not respecting veterans. In a statement then, she said:
“My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen, and every other member of the military, so sacrificially, has given to the country.”
Track Palin served a tour of duty in Iraq in 2008, where he saw combat.
Sarah has yet to weigh in directly following this latest incident, but chances are she won’t be blaming President Trump, who she endorsed early in the 2016 presidential campaign.
A lawyer representing Sarah and her husband Todd released a statement late Sunday, saying in part, “Given the nature of actions addressed last night by law enforcement and the charges involved, the Palins are unable to comment further. 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.”
In other words, no comment.
