Track Palin Held In Custody For Beating His Father

The Los Angeles Times reports:

New details emerged Monday about the arrest of Track Palin, the eldest son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, with charging documents saying he broke into his parents’ home and beat his father.

Track Palin, 28, was arrested Saturday and is charged with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree assault and criminal mischief; he remains in custody. A court filing describes a chaotic scene at the family’s home in Wasilla, Alaska, when Track Palin confronted his father over a truck he wanted to pick up.

His father, Todd Palin, had told him not to come to the home because Track Palin had been drinking and taking pain medication, according to a sworn police affidavit and charging documents.

“Track told him he was [going to] come anyway to beat his ass,” according to an affidavit filed by Wasilla police Officer Adam LaPointe.

According to the linked report, Track entered his parents house by breaking a side window and then repeatedly pummeled his father’s head.

That’s when the Hockey Mom called 911 to report that her son was “freaking out.” When the police arrived, Todd and Sarah were fleeing the house in separate vehicles.

    Geez, just another party night at the Palins, what’s the big deal?

  • safari

    So, a regular Wasilla Saturday at the Palin house?

  • IAMBOWLINGQUEEN

    No doubt Palin will find some way to blame President Obama. Even though the evidence is that they are are a very dysfunctional family.

  • safari

    Opiods shouldn’t make one violent. Sleepy, yes. Itchy, yes. But violent?

    • Steven Jaeger

      Sounds more like meth

    • William

      Brand name Vicodin makes me break out in an itchy rash. The generic never has.

    • Lars Littlefield

      They make people cranky. Mix that with booze and you get a cranky, mean drunk.

      • safari

        Good to know

      • Cuberly Deux

        I can attest to that. What they did to my mom for three weeks in hospice wasn’t pretty.

        • Cuberly Deux

          …no booze was involved but still.

      • Canadian Observer

        Do you pour them on ice after? (I wonder if Amazon has a Track sized cocktail shaker)

  • Christopher

    Were they out of his favourite brand of Meth?

    • safari

      Maybe he just wanted to borrow a cup of meth.

      • Christopher

        Ah, I see!

        Well, they brought this on themselves then.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      I posted something similar and same like.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      And let’s just say somebody did say that….

      • Christopher

        I’ll totally say it!

        Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    And this trashy family could have been our second family.
    Makes you want to puke.

    What time does a person have to start drinking and popping pills to be that fucked up by 8:30 p.m.?

    • safari

    You don’t say.

    • David Walker

      It sounds like dad ain’t what he used to be. Although, to be fair, I’ve seen what can happen when someone mixes his pain meds with alcohol and it’s pretty scary. Still, you’d think the half-term governor would have ready access to a rifle or two.

      • bzrd

      • vorpal

        I’ve done it, and the only thing people in my vicinity risk is being projectile vomited upon. Not making that mistake again.

        • David Walker

          So, you’re down to 8 lives now?

          • vorpal

            After the year I’ve had, I think I’m somehow at -3 lives but still scampering.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    LOL over a truck ? ha ha.
    No, he was after a stash of meth.

    • safari

      Or just wanted to kick his father’s ass.

      That happens sometimes.

  • PickyPecker
    • clay

      Curtains? You know Sarah ain’t washing those– it’s mini-blinds all the way, when they remember to close them.

    • Adam Stevens

      I believe the curtains he speaks of are Bristol’s beef ones.

    • Uncle Mark

      You think the “curtains” are bad; they don’t even come close to matching the “carpet”…and that’s just Todd we’re talking about

      • Galvestonian

        They’re not curtains – that’s her old underwear.

    • romanhans

      Years ago David Letterman make a joke about Bristol Palin’s out-of-wedlock pregnancy and Sarah’s fans actually picketed calling for him to be fired. I was the only counter-protester, with this sign.

      Sarah needs a life
      Bristol needs a spouse
      I see idiots
      From my house.

      Fox News tried to interview me and only showed the top two lines of the sign. Letterman sent someone down to give me five pencils with erasers on both ends embossed with “The Late Show with David Letterman” in gold.

      Ah, the good old days.

  • Tawreos

    I predict that she will call it fake news and a liberal attack job

We’ve done a virus scan on the JMG server, which is standalone, and found nothing. My apologies. SO aggravating.

      This is not the first example of Rose’s hysterics by any sense, so I’m inclined to side with Meryl Streep on this one.

            I really don’t know who she is. However, the statements she’s been making the last couple of weeks indicates she has some major instability.

          • Treant

            She played Paige, the third sister on Charmed. And…uh…well, I’ll just link it below. Nothing I’ve watched.

          • mpatreyu

            Not afraid to sa I loved that show. And she was great on it.

          • olandp

            Actually she was the fourth, long lost sister who appeared after they fired/killed off Shannon Doherty.

            (I watched it in syndication because there were some really hot men.)

          • kelven

            One of the funnest jobs I did as an extra was two days on Charmed. It was the episode where one of the sisters is possessed by Mati Hari and casts a spell on a crowd of business people. Slapstick chaos ensues. It was a hoot!

          • Treant

            Yeah, I watched it too, but being the fourth Power of Three is a bit much. 🙂

          • johncAtl

            I didn’t know either so I went to IMDB, and I’m still not sure who she is.

          • Ninja0980

            She helped exposed a predator and good for her.
            But her actions now will only hurt people like her in the end.
            You attack all of your allies, you won’t have any left.

            It’s much like the Faux Feminists we see here. If you’re having a discussion with me, great.

            But if you toss an ad hominem the first moment you’re challenged, I write you off instantly and also knock the the whole movement a few points for being dumb enough to allow you in it. 🙂

        • JCF

          I think that’s often what happens to traumatized people (If you remember her—and what happened to her?—see re Cindy Sheehan. Going after Dubya-Cheney? Spot-dafuq-on. Going after everyone, including Democrats who voted AGAINST the verkakte Iraq War? Not so much.)

      • gaycuckhubby

        And Rose is hardly spotless. She has defended a convicted child rapist who was her director.

        “Yeah, I still don’t really understand the whole story or history there, and I’d rather not, because it’s not really my business. But he’s an incredibly sweet and gentle man, lovely to his crew, and a very hard worker”

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Rose McGowan is picking some very ill advised battles to fight when it comes to this issue. Meryl Streep is no shrinking violet when it comes to calling men out, she’s been doing it for decades, literally. If she says she didn’t really know about HW’s crimes, I believe her precisely because she’s never shied away from standing up to men. Again, Rose, do yourself a favour and don’t pick fights with people who are far more adept at dealing with bullshit.

      Simpler comment: Rose…you’re overplaying your hand, pull it back before you lose the high ground.

        Thanks, Hank. And to you too.

        My mama (may she rest in peace, such a good woman) had one of those electric menorahs in her apartment. On the window sill. She agonized every Hanukkah over this existential question/dilemma:

        “Do I light the candles in the direction that is “correct” for us, here in the apartment – or do I light them in the direction that’s correct for an observer outside, looking at the thing?”

        I swear, I think the girl took that to the grave with her.

        • Michael White

          you have to love moms . My Irish mother would drive me nuts ( a very short trip) with such things. I ate a cough drop as a kid before Mass ( you had to fast 3 hours from all eat and drink). Since I did not have a cough we couldn’t write it off as medicine. Poor woman did not go to church herself, but we kids did.

          • another_steve

            The elderly Irish Catholic are the best.

            My husband is Irish on his mother’s side. His aunt, then 91 years old, insisted on going to church every Sunday “to confess her sins to Almighty God.”

            My man and I used to giggle over this. This was the most saintly woman in the world. I mean (no exaggeration here), I’m Satan incarnate compared to how and what she was. That good and beautiful and wise woman.

            May she rest in peace.

        • Hank

          But did she leave you her recipe for her “Latkes”???

          • another_steve

            She left us all her recipes. Recipes that had been passed down to her by her mother. My husband periodically prepares them.

            My beloved shegetz is the cook in our household. He actually completed chef training as a young man and holds a certificate certifying it – though life took him in another professional direction.

    • djcoastermark

      I didn’t know track marks was an actual sport? I guess I live a sheltered life.

  • Outlaw Woman

    The reason I’m not going to go after the Palins on this, is because I do not remember Sarah being particularly critical of “liberal parents being shitty” or anything like that.

    However, I will keep this little tid-bit on mental file when any other republican tries to make that argument (and they will) in the future.

    • gaycuckhubby

      I dont really remember her criticizing parenting either.

      Her daughter promoting abstinence only and then getting pregnant was kind of hysterical though

      • Outlaw Woman

        So true … for all of Sarah’s other shortcomings, I think she’s well aware that she lives in a “glass house”.

          . . . and there’s a LOT of glass in her dual four-bed, four bath houses 200 yards from the Best Western.

  • Blackfork

    I can see prison from my house!

  • BeaverTales

    Maybe Sarah needs to spend more time with her family instead of antagonizing everyone who disagrees with her. Unfortunately spending time with family is not as profitable as being a RWNJ for hire.

  • Hank

    Palin Family Values = Trailer Trash

    • Hank

      After getting off the phone with his son, Todd Palin told police that he got his pistol out to “protect his family.”

      • Hank

        “At the time of his arrest, Track was serving two years of probation on a plea deal stemming from a domestic violence arrest in January 2016.”

    • Renfield

      Is Trailer and Trash more of Sarah’s children? I did not know that.

  • fkevin

    Other persons would have been shot or at least tased:

    “Todd Palin was able to escape the house, but siffered injuries to his face and head according to police and had “liquid coming from his ear.”

    “Track stood on the porch,” LaPointe wrote, recalling officers’ attempt to make contact with Track, who was now alone in the house. “Communication was attempted which failed due to Track yelling and calling myself and other officers peasants and telling us to lay our guns on the ground before approaching the residence.”

    “He moved around in a strange manner and assumed a prone position just behind the roof line in what appeared to be an attempt to locate officers on the property,” LaPointe writes, adding that Palin eventually realized he was outmatched and came outside to talk 10 or 15 minutes later.”

      • Bluto

        Yes, that sums it up nicely.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    So Track went out for tricks then trekked back to tussle with troglodyte sperm donor Todd while his twittering twaddle of a mother telephoned the troopers to tell them Track was being turbulent in his temperament.

    • AmeriCanadian

      Too true.

    Trash. The whole family is nothing but trash.

    The Palin family gives white trash a bad name.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    TMZ LOL:

    While trying to subdue him, the officer says Track called the cops “peasants” and told them to drop their guns.

    • Gustav2

      ROTFLMAO!

    • BobSF_94117

      Why was Track trying to subdue the officer?

      He gets that from his mama’s side of the family.

    Todd Palin is not some meek mild weak man. Somethings stinks about this whole thing. More to come I’m sure.

  • justmeeeee

    Breeding will out.

  • boobert

    They are a pathetic bunch ! I’m trying not to laugh, I really am ! lol

  • BobSF_94117

    Todd and Sarah were fleeing the house in separate vehicles

    One disposing of the pot, the other of the meth?

  • Outlaw Woman

    The only thing that would have made this better would be Track challenging the cops to some “nekkid rasslin'” !
    Maybe he did … God I hope there was body cam footage!

  • I will never forgive McCain and Schmidt for unleashing that white trash nightmare family on the American public.

    • billbear1961

      But they’re the new Ruling Class, H!

      Remember he called the cops peasants when they were trying to subdue him!

  • ikahana

    Is meth considered a pain medication now?

    • ClevelandJim

      Only in Wasilla..

      Please, meth is over*. All the stylish hillbillies are into opioids now.

      I don’t know for sure, but I’ll go with the odds and guess “pregnant.”

    • Bluto

      Accidentally falling on a penis.

  • Bambino

    Track should be hail as the model for the white trash family. Going after his own creators is the right step. Unrelated people should not be the collateral damage.

    • Reality.Bites

      I can only imagine the temptation the police had to delay their arrival till Track was finished.

      • Bambino

        Something about a malfunction GPS on the police cars should do it.

        • David Walker

          I don’t think anybody would believe that one. The cops have been there far too often.

          • Bambino

            Or they know too well the family is drunk fighting, and will wait out till the morning when it will be all over by then.

  • TampaDink

    No mention of Trig, the youngest of their kids….I think he’s 9 or 10. I suspect that the sent him away to live in some institution, where he is a hell of a lot more safe.

    Edit: After reading the article Joe linked, Trig was mentioned along with his sisters but not in relation to the activities described.

    • billbear1961

      WELCOME BACK!

      People have been wondering if you were okay after your move!

    • djcoastermark

      Been wondering where you’ve been. Been out of town a lot this month and haven’t been as up on things as usual. Sooo, hows things up north?

  • Henry Auvil

    It’s Obama’s fault that Track is a violent sociopath. Funny how Sasha and Malia haven’t ever been arrested for assaulting their parents…

    • coram nobis

      Do you also notice that no one has drawn a connection between Track’s antics and Hillary’s e-mails? Must be some serious cover-up going on somewhere.

  • bkmn

    Such a shame he didn’t give him mummy her Xmas present too.

  • Refugay

    Sarah knew what she signed him up for.

  • Bambino

    Apparently Todd employed evasive escape strategy from his pursuing son.

      So at 0:47, the cops threw the strips that are supposed to puncture your tires, missing the perp but getting two civilians. Okey dokey.

  • jawnbc

    Regardless of how shitty she and her family have been, it sounds like a terrible situation. Whether it inspires the Palins to be more compassionate or not, I hope that young man gets the help he obviously needs. PTSD + opiates + alcohol rarely ends well.

    • kareemachan

      PTSD – BULLSHIT. Unless they can prove that $arah caused it, he has no excuse for PTSD. He drove bigwigs around during his army “career”. No front-line service, no PTSD-inducing experiences. SO CRAP ON THAT.

      (And I’m writing this as a person with friends who actually have frickiing PTSD.)

      But I’ll agree with you on the other two.

  • billbear1961
  • kareemachan

    They fled in separate cars? That must be some marriage….

    • Tor

      Maybe Track interrupted their own fight.

  • worstcultever

    Thanks John McCain for bringing these shitty people and their shitty children – all of whom never deserved anything but oblivion – into the mainstream of our political reality tv world. Can’t thank you enough.

    Then again, how much worse would Prez Palin have been than Prez Dump? Maybe McCain was ahead of the zeitgeist.

    • MBear

      As McCain draws his final breaths, someone should remind him that his legacy, what he will be known through the generations as, will be as the man who put Sarah “rodent brain” Palin on the world stage… and the world is worse off for this

      • Renfield

        McCain is an idiot. Is, was, and always will be. He’s part of the GOP. ‘Nuff said.

        • Well look at it this way. He helped elect President Obama the first time around. If he did not select an idiot, and if the fates would have been different, he might have been elected. Palin was our insurance policy.

      It would be an improvement.

        • M Jackson

          That pretty much sums up the Palins. Maybe add the rifles and snowmobiles.

    I’m sorry that Mr.and Mrs. Palin had to go through that. Even if their child rearing skills are directly responsible for many of their son’s issues, I wouldn’t wish an experience like that on anyone.

    • Blueflash

      I would.

    • Ben in Oakland

      I will do my very best to wring my hands in concern. The palins, Roy Moore, Rick warren…all making money telling other people how they should live their lives, yet somehow never remembering they have families,

      • Silver Badger

        I’m not wringing my hand in concern. Pain is pain. The pain that is caused by the failure of child rearing is especially intense.

        • Ben in Oakland

          You are more compassionate towards them than I am. I mean that as a compliment.

          • Silver Badger

            It is kind of you to think so. Thank you.

    What spam ads? The only one I ever see is the occasional “Google pays blah blah”. I use Chrome.

    If Todd were a real man, he would have punched Track, because Track wasn’t wearing at sport coat and tie! That’s what 45 did do his sketchy son…I forget which son.

    Anyone who would marry Sarah and help her perpetuate her genetic line (I don’t need to go into how well that worked) deserves to be beaten about the head and the body and the groin and the…..
    Especially the groin.

    • RainbowPhoenix

      Actually, based on the timeline that Palin herself gave, Track may not actually be the product of Todd helping her continue her line. Granted, he presumably has no excuse for the rest of them.

  • JAKvirginia

    And this could’ve been our Vice President and her family? God help me.

    • coram nobis

      Would have been a blended “Beverly Hillbillies” and “Dynasty.” Certainly would have been an interesting miniseries set in Washington during the McCain presidency.

    • GeneInSJ

      And I still can’t forgive McCain for that.

  • RainbowPhoenix

    Great job raising your shotgun baby there, Sarah. Who are you going to blame for your failure as a parent this time?

    Think Sarah the jiggle head will blame Obama again? So much for the party of personal responsibility.

  • Kevin Perez

    Police say that when they arrived they had a stand-off with Mr Palin in which he moved around the house and at one stage went out onto the garage roof. They say he demanded police put their weapons on the ground and allegedly called them “peasants”.

    If he was black, he’d be dead.

  • Nowhereman

    Just think–this family was almost one heartbeat away from the White House.

  • Ogre Magi

    and yet christians are the ones always braying about family values

    Best line of all … “When the police arrived, Todd and Sarah were fleeing the house in separate vehicles.” LOL … If she hadn’t done anything wrong why was SHE fleeing – out of sympathy? ROFL
