ALASKA: Track Palin Granted House Arrest, Banned From Drinking, Having Guns, Going Near Parents’ Home

The Anchorage Daily News reports:

A bearded, tattooed and silent Track Palin sat in a Palmer courtroom today as a judge signed off on house arrest for charges from Palin’s assault on his father Saturday.

Palin, 28, was arrested by Wasilla police Saturday after his mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, called them for help. He is charged with felony first-degree burglary and misdemeanor fourth-degree assault, both related to domestic violence.

Todd Palin told officers his son came through a window and beat him on the head after the two argued about a truck Track wanted, charging documents say. Todd said Track had been drinking and taking prescription pills. Todd met Track at the door with a pistol but did not use it.

Once released, he’s not allowed to go within an “exclusion zone” around his parents’ home along the Parks Highway, or near liquor stores or places serving alcohol. He can’t drink and must take prescription drugs only as prescribed. All weapons must be taken out of his house.

Track Palin is allowed to leave the house for medical appointments and for his job with a drilling company.
