Track Palin Allegedly Assaulted His Dad ... Sarah Palin Called Cops

Track Palin, the oldest son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was arrested Saturday in Alaska on charges of domestic violence.

Track Palin was charged with domestic violence in January of 2016.

In their statement through their attorney, the Palins asked "that [their] family's privacy [be] respected during this challenging situation".

Track Palin, shown with Willow and Trig Palin in 2008, was arrested Saturday after authorities said he violently attacked his father, Todd.

Police say Track then went inside and climbed up onto the roof from an upstairs window.

When police arrived, they saw Todd and Sarah Palin fleeing the house in separate vehicles, Todd Palin with blood running down his face and Sarah Palin looking "visibly upset", the documents say.

At this time, no information has been given about Track's court date or bond status.

An affidavit from the arresting officer revealed that Sarah Palin, 53, had claimed her oldest son was "freaking out" and on "some type of medication". Representatives for the Palin family could not be immediately reached for comment.

A woman who answered the phone at Mat-Su Pretrial Facility in Palmer, Alaska, said Track Palin was listed as being held there as of Sunday evening. He then allegedly kicked his girlfriend, threw her cell phone and threatened suicide with his AR-15 rifle, according to the documents. He pleaded guilty to misconduct involving weapons charge for possessing a weapon while intoxicated.

Mrs Palin's eldest son has been in legal trouble before, prompting his mother - a former Alaska governor who ran alongside US Senator John McCain against Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election - to question the support available for military veterans who might be suffering from post-traumatic stress.
