Just when you thought the Palin’s couldn’t get anymore messed up, well, they do. This family makes the Kardashian’s look like amateurs. Sarah Palin’s 26 year old son, Track Palin was arrested Monday night for threats of domestic violence.
According to the police report published by Gawker, the Wasilla police were called to the scene – a home owned by Sarah and Todd Palin – after they received an emergency call from a woman who claimed to had been punched in the face by a man with a gun. Then another call was received by Track Palin who claimed that the woman who had called before him was intoxicated.
Andrew Kappler was the Officer assigned to the scene and for filing the report. Upon arriving at the house, Kappler saw Palin outside talking on his cellphone with what appeared to be a “visible injury” to his right eye. Palin’s eyes were apparently bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol. Palin was “uncooperative, belligerent and evasive.” Due to Palin’s “escalating hostility” and the victim’s “unknown whereabouts,” Kappler had no choice but to put Palin under arrest.
The other officers assigned to the scene soon found the victim after arresting Palin. She was found “hiding and crying underneath a bed inside the residence” and told the officers that earlier that evening Palin had been extremely violent and hit her near the eye with his fist. Palin then held a rifle to his head and threatened to commit suicide.
Note: the victim’s last name has been redacted for safety purposes.
The events are explained as per the police report, here:
“She and her boyfriend of one year, Track Palin, left a different residence together and were arguing the whole way home. Once they got to his home they argued in the car, then in the driveway . They were screaming and he was calling her names. [Redacted] told Palin that she had called the cops even though she had not, in attempt to calm him down and to scare him away from “touching her”. Palin approached [Redacted] and struck her on the left side of her head near her eye with a closed fist. [Redacted] got on the ground in a fetal position because she didn’t know what else he would do. Palin then kicked [redacted] on the right knee. [Redacted]’s phone was sitting on the ground in front of her. Palin took her phone and threw it across the driveway. She retrieved the phone and went inside the house. Palin was already inside and holding onto a gun, yelling “do you think I’m a pussy?” and “do you think I won’t do it?” [Redacted] stated Palin “cocked the gun” and was holding the rifle out next to him with the his right hand near the trigger and his left hand near the barrel, with the barrel just away from his face pointed to the side. [Redacted] was concerned that he would shoot himself and ran outside and around the house. She didn’t see where Palin went, so she went inside and up the stairs, where she hid under a bed. Shortly after, she heard Palin walking around inside looking for her. Palin left after not locating her.”
Another officer made note of further injuries to the victim:
“Sergeant Rader observed [redacted] to have bruising and swelling around her left eye. She complained of pain to that area as well as to her right knee. He observed a small red area near her knee. The involved firearm, an unloaded AR-15 rifle was located on the kitchen counter.”
Palin’s bail was posted at $1,500 and will be due in court on February 19, 2016.

Clearly Sarah needs to spend a little more time with her family and a little less time endorsing The Trumpster.
All kidding aside, domestic violence is a serious crime and not one to be taken lightly. Regardless of whether it involves the Palin’s or anyone else, it’s unacceptable. I truly hope the victim is okay, and that Track Palin is punished for this.
