An Alaskan news outlet has obtained details about a domestic violence incident involving Sarah Palin’s son Track Palin — who is accused of attacking his father in what appears to be a drug-fueled rage.
The Anchorage Daily News obtained charging documents that describe a chaotic and terrifying scene at the Palin’s Wasilla home Saturday night. Track Palin, 28, reportedly wanted to come to the home to pick up a truck, but his father, Todd, told him not to because he’d been drinking.
Track reportedly showed up to the house anyway, and his father met him at the door with a gun. Track then challenged his father repeatedly to shoot him, and allegedly broke through a window to get into the house.
Then, according to the charging documents, Track physically attacked his father, and beat him in the head.
At some point, Sarah Palin called the police, reporting that her son was “freaking out and was on some type of medication.”
When police arrived, both Sarah and Todd Palin were reportedly leaving the house in separate vehicles, and officers saw blood on Todd’s face.
During a brief standoff with police, Track reportedly called them “peasants” and demanded they lay down their weapons. It is unclear if the officers responded to the request, but Track was eventually taken into custody peacefully.
Sarah Palin has not publicly commented on the incident, and when the Anchorage Daily News reached Todd Palin by phone, he said only, “we’re fine. We’re fine.”
Track Palin charged with felony first-degree burglary and misdemeanor fourth-degree assault. As of Monday night, he remained in custody on $5,000 bail.
