Sarah Palin's Son, Track Palin, Arrested for Burglary and Assault

The oldest son of the former Alaskan governor has been charged with felony burglary, misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief.

AceShowbiz - Sarah Palin's son, Track Palin, has landed in trouble again. The 28-year-old army veteran was arrested on Saturday, December 16 in Wasilla, Alaska on burglary and assault charges, according to multiple reports.

He was arraigned in state court on Sunday morning and was charged on felony burglary, assault in the fourth degree and criminal mischief for causing property damage of between $250 and $999. It was not immediately clear what had happened that led to the arrest, but the Los Angeles Times suggested that Track may have injured or tried to injure someone during the alleged burglary.

Court records didn't list an attorney or indicate Track's bail status. A state corrections department spokeswoman said he was still being held at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility in Palmer as of Sunday afternoon.

A lawyer for the Palin family said in a statement to New York Daily News regarding the arrest, "Given the nature of actions addressed last night by law enforcement and the charges involved, the Palins are unable to comment further. They ask that the family's privacy is respected during this challenging situation just as others dealing with a struggling family member would also request."

This is not the first time Track had a brush with the law. In January 2016, he was arrested after allegedly punching his girlfriend, who was found hiding under a bed and crying. She told police that he punched her in the face during a domestic dispute. Charges of assault and interfering with a police report were eventually dismissed as Track took a deal where he only pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm while drunk.

In September 2014, he was reportedly involved in a brawl that broke out at a party in Anchorage, but no charges were filed against him. According to the police report, Track was heavily intoxicated and had blood around his mouth and on his hands.
