Police in Wasilla, Alaska responded to a call from former governor Sarah Palin Saturday evening, when she reported that her 28-year-old son, Track Palin (above, far left), had broken into her home and was assaulting her husband, Track's father, Todd Palin. The Anchorage Daily News reported that Palin told police her son was "freaking out" and "on some type of medication."
According to the police report, Track had called wanting to come to his parents' home to pick up a truck, but his father warned him not to come over. Apparently Todd believed his son had been combining alcohol with pain medication and was under the influence. Track allegedly told Todd he was coming over anyway to "beat his ass." When Track arrived at the home despite his father's warnings, Todd had armed himself with a pistol to "protect his family."
Track proceeded to break in through a window, and began hitting his father in the face as he pinned him to the floor. Todd Palin managed to escape but sustained injuries to his face and head, police officer Adam LaPointe reported.
Track Palin was soon after arrested on felony charges of first-degree burglary as well as misdemeanor criminal mischief, and fourth-degree assault. A judge has reportedly set Palin's bail at $5,000 cash, but as of this morning, he remains in custody at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility in Palmer.
