ALASKA: Track Palin Remains Jailed As Court Issues Domestic Violence Protective Order For His Ex-Wife

The Anchorage Daily News reports:

Track Palin, the son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, opted not to finish a therapeutic court program for military veterans to address a 2016 domestic-violence arrest.

Wasilla police arrested Palin, 28, on Saturday for beating his father, Todd Palin, at his parents’ home near the Parks Highway. It was Sarah Palin who called police.

An Anchorage judge Monday granted Track Palin’s ex-wife a short-term domestic violence protective order, according to a state courts database.

Palin remained jailed at Mat-Su Pretrial Facility on $5,000 cash or corporate bail and release to a third-party custodian.

More from NBC News:

Track Palin, the oldest son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, called police officers “peasants” and “moved around in a strange manner” before he was arrested for allegedly breaking into his parents’ house and assaulting his father, according to a police affidavit.

Police were called to the Palin family home on Saturday night after Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, told officers her son was “freaking out” and on “some type of medication,” according to the affidavit, contained in a court filing.

Todd Palin, Track’s father, “appeared to have injuries to his face and head based on the visible blood running down his face,” Wasilla Police Officer Adam LaPointe said in the affidavit.

    I find it difficult to have any sympathy for the son of an elected official who calls the police peasants. I wonder where he got that attitude?

      Mommy has no issue calling the peasants for help when daddy got attacked by the son.

        I am glad that no innocent party was injured.

    • Gigi

      I have sympathy for anyone raised by Todd and Sarah Palin.

      • Dramphooey

        How the garbage went on about that grizzly mama and the soccer mom/pit bull shit.

      • Nowhereman

        I agree. And if he does indeed have PTSD, it’s from being raised by those two.

    • clay
    • unsavedheathen

      I find it difficult not to imagine Track’s left ear in my right fist and his right ear in my left fist and tears running down his cheeks…

  • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

    Will the therapy program he dropped out of be eliminated under the new tax plan?

    • Mark

      My guess is yes.

    • Tawreos

      Only if it was actually helping people.

    • Dramphooey

      It will probably also end maintenance on school buses so Track Palin is now redundant.

  • mikeinftl

    Alaskan hillbillies the whole lot. He has issues, lets hope he get the therapy he needs.

    • TuuxKabin

      He keeps signing out of the therapy he needs.

        Well quitting is a family tradition, after all.

      that’s what i was thinking. some big ol bubba needs to show him the other side of domestic violence.

      he wants to ‘rule the roost’ with his dick and fists…then turnabout would be fair play.

  • Bambino

    Silly media. The family was just playing The Hunger Games. Next time the peasants and the media should just ignore them.

    • greenmanTN

      If only the media had ignored them for the last 8 years or so.

      • Bambino

        Right? That family is another attention whore. The Wasilla Barbie boasted she can shoot wolves from a helicopter. If her and her husband lives were really in danger, she would have no problem defending herself. Calling the police is just letting the world know they still exist.

        • Christopher


          In this day and age it’s not like a self defense/murder charge would prohibit one from grifting on the scale that they do.

          She just misses the spotlight.

          OR Sarah was too stupid to drive Tod to the hospital.

          OR It took two of them to get all of the pickups away from Track.

          OR Sarah’s instincts took over and she chased the weaker animal.

      Time to post this: Three bishops in PA sign onto a letter with Southern Baptists and others, criticizing parents for letting their children believe they could be transgender, while 40% of queer high school students have thought about, and 25% of queer high school students have attempted, suicide, largely due to lack of family support. No criticism for kicking the kids to the streets, however.

      • Sporkfighter

        I wish this were news, and I wish I could be shocked. I knew two members of the 25%. Unfortunately, they were successful in their attempts. The way our country wastes our talents and opportunities is heartbreaking.

      • Jerry Kott

        He may be slowly killing himself with substance abuse but under in these circumstances, he will only take his own life after he has taken the life or lives of others. He will only get help when a court orders it.

        Bishops of what denominations signed on with the Southern Baptist? It is Pennsylvania, it is in retrograde.

        • clay

          2 RCC, 1 EOrthodx

    Great parenting from Wasilla Barbie and Wasilla Ken. Remember she was chastising Michelle Obama dictating what children should be eating when the First Lady was just introducing healthy diet into the family of America?

    • marshlc

      Maybe the diet of Big Gulps and Ding Dongs he was raised on has something to do with Track’s problems?

    “Track Palin… opted not to finish a therapeutic court program for military veterans to address a 2016 domestic-violence arrest.”

    since he was already clearly in violation of parole.

    Not strictly written about any Palin, but one day it will fit perfectly.

  • kareemachan

    Do I really need to point out that if he was black, the cops wouldn’t have waited to shoot while he moved around “in a strange manner”?

      particularly when they knew he was armed.

      He’s the son of a half-term governor and a Marlboro Man snow mobile champ wannabe. That’s a start.

        The Duke of Wellington concurs…

        (this entire scene is quite the moment…worth a view if you’re inclined.
        The King is both pissed and pissed off. The shot of all the glassware being lined really gives scope to it all.)

        • David Walker

          Good one. Thank you. I did watch the whole scene and now I want to see it all.

          • Amanda B. Rekendwith

            I hope you will enjoy it. A good story, lushly told.
            Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York was a producer, and Princess Beatrice has a cameo in the coronation scene. Emilie Blunt and Rupert Friend make the Victoria & Albert story a true romance for the ages. It quite changed my understanding of Victoria…who had a totally bizarre upbringing.
            Here’s a great fan video which nicely captures the background of the story.

          • Queen Victoria was even more remarkable considering she had to take the reigns of power, relatively unprepared, at the age of 18. Despite some mistakes at the beginning she did a relatively good job of it after the ill thought of reigns of her two uncles.

          • Amanda B. Rekendwith

            Agreed. She was extremely unprepared.
            I think that Albert was a good partner for her in navigating her route, although he could be quite savage in his treatment of her as well. It certainly wasn’t all fun and games.
            BTW, have you read An Uncommon Woman by Hannah Pakula?
            A great story about V&A’s daughter Vicki and the realities she encountered in her role leading up to her short tenure as Empress.
            The psychotics of the various royal houses is quite amazing. Great human drama.

    • Sporkfighter

      Yep. If he attacked someone else’s dad he’d be out on bail already.

  • DaMoldBrok

    My question is; Why am I not able to get the video from the Today show in the story, to stop? I click in the pause button, and then it starts right back up.

    I know that he’s a turd, but Track is quite hunky. I can’t wait until he decides to do porn as a way of making money to pay his many legal fees. (I somehow don’t see the Momma Grizzly paying for them, since he attacked the Papa Bear.)
