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.
