Yesterday, Palin’s son, Track, was charged in Wasilla with weapons and assault offenses.
Per online court records, Track Palin, 26, was charged yesterday with assault, interfering with a report of domestic violence, and possession of a weapon while intoxicated. All three charges are misdemeanors. Spokespersons with both the Wasilla Police Department and the district attorney’s office confirmed their existence.
Wow! That living vibrantly is REALLY working out well isn't it?
You know what else is interesting?
Bristol Palin removed that shot of Track with Trig and Tripp from her Instagram page.
I guess somebody knew what was coming.
I wonder if this means that the Donald will still allow Palin to endorse him later today?
Update: And yes as predicted Sarah Palin did indeed endorse Donald Trump:
“I’m proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for president of the United States of America,” Palin said in a statement from the Trump campaign.
In the statement, Trump said he is "greatly honored" to receive Palin's backing. "She is a friend, and a high quality person whom I have great respect for," he said. "I am proud to have her support.”
How's THAT for perfect timing?
Gee what a great day for...uh...for...uh...yeah there are really no winners today are there?
Update 2: It looks like the Wasilla police department has some more info:
On 01/18/2016 at approximately 2204 hours, Wasilla Police responded to a residence for a disturbance. An investigation revealed Track Palin had committed a domestic violence assault on a female, interfered with her ability to report a crime of domestic violence, and possessed a firearm while intoxicated. Palin was arrested and charges of assault in the fourth degree (domestic violence), interfering with a domestic violence report, and misconduct involving weapons in the fourth degree were forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office. Palin was held without bail until arraignment.
Anybody want to venture a guess as to who the unnamed woman might be?
Update 3: Apparently the woman Track beat up was not Britta, his ex-wife -- at least not according to Radar Online:
Track’s ex-wife, Britta Hanson, told Radar she was not involved in the incident.
“I had no idea it happened. I did not know about that,” she told Radar.
Update 4: Here is more from Alaska Dispatch:
According to a criminal complaint in the case against Palin, filed by investigator Andrew Kappler, police responding to a 911 call from a West Parks Highway home where a female said she had been punched in the face found Track walking in the area with a “a visible injury to his right eye.” When asked about the call, Palin denied that a gun was involved but said several were in the home.
“Due to Palin’s escalating hostility, the unknown whereabouts of the 911 caller, and officer safety, Palin was placed into handcuffs,” Kappler wrote.
Palin was ultimately charged with fourth-degree domestic-violence assault and misconduct involving weapons, as well as interfering with the reporting of a domestic-violence crime.
A woman beater and a common thug, nothing surprising about that at all.
Update 5: Here's a screen shot of the charges.
Update 6: Sarah Palin was supposed to endorse Trump at a rally in Iowa at 6:00 PM Eastern Time. As of 6:15, neither Sarah nor Trump had appeared on the stage and the press was being told there would be a further delay. Guess Sarah is trying to figure out how to answer questions about her thug criminal son.
Update 7: MORE:
The oldest of Sarah Palin’s five children, Track allegedly punched his girlfriend in the eye, kicked her in the knee and then held an AR-15 assault rifle near his head, the 22-year-old woman told police who responded to the incident just after 10 p.m. Monday.
At one point, Track was “holding onto a gun, yelling ‘do you think I’m a p---y?’ and ‘do you think I won’t do it?’”
Update 8: More
We’ve seen an unhinged Sarah Palin declare war on Ted Cruz, and then, in an epically bizarre rant even for her, endorse Donald Trump. The Clinton campaign in an email to supporters calls this a “bad SNL skit come to life” and says they would like to see it stay that way.
The police report (full report here) by Officer Andrew Kappler says it all:
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.There was an unloaded AR-15 on the counter. You know, the favorite weapon of “real American” patriots everywhere, and the same one, because of their opposition to sensible gun laws, with which they want all terrorists to be armed.
Here’s the charges:
Imagine, America. This could have all been yours, all taking place in the White House instead of Sarah and Todd Palin’s home in Wasilla. In her endorsement of Trump, Palin famously said Trump “would let our warriors do their job.” She apparently didn’t do her’s in bringing up her loutish son, who, according to a police press release, “was held without bail until arraignment.”
Trump, meanwhile, was indicting himself back in Ames, Iowa, when he said of Palin, “She is a friend, and a high-quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support.” He later tweeted, “I am greatly honored to receive Sarah Palin’s endorsement tonight.”
High quality. Yes. Look at that family. Rotten apples everywhere. A brave woman-beater son, a daughter who’s the twice-pregnant-out-of-wedlock face of abstinence, and all of them drunken street brawlers.
You have to ask yourself if this sort of appalling behavior is all going to be part of making America great again.
America dodged the Palin bullet once, back in 2008. We’ll dodge another one in 2016 if we can keep this “bad SNL skit come to life” away from Capitol Hill. Don’t laugh. Trump has already said he’d “love” for Palin to serve in a Trump administration.
Track Palin's girl friend, Jordan Loewe, on left in a typical pose -- Tea Party family values on display.
So as I am sure all of you know we, and apparently everybody else, reported yesterday that Track Palin had been arrested for getting drunk and punching a woman in the face.
We now know for certain that the woman was his girlfriend of one year, Jordan Loewe.
Here is more courtesy of the AP:
According to the three-page affidavit, both Palin and his girlfriend called 911 that night. Police Officer Andrew Kappler wrote that he arrived at the Wasilla home and found Track Palin walking outside and talking on a phone. The officer said Palin had an injury to his right eye and surrounding area, smelled strongly of alcohol and acted with escalating hostility, prompting Kappler to put him in handcuffs.
Police say a breath sample provided by Palin showed he had a blood alcohol level of 0.189.
The affidavit says other officers found the girlfriend hiding under a bed inside the home and crying.
The argument continued at the home, according to the affidavit, which says Palin struck the woman with his fist on the left side of her head near her eye. She curled up in the fetal position because she didn't know what else he would do, the woman told police. She said he then kicked her in the knee and threw her phone across the driveway, according to the court document. The woman said she went inside after getting her phone.
Inside, Palin held the rifle, with the barrel just away from his face pointed to the side, the affidavit states. The affidavit adds that the woman told police Palin was yelling "Do you think I won't do it?"
The girlfriend "was concerned that he would shoot himself and ran outside and around the house," the affidavit says. "She didn't see where Palin went, so she went inside and up the stairs, where she hid under a bed."
So now we learn that Track had a blood alcohol level of 0.189, which is considered legally drunk, and then some.
Here is a little more detail from Alaska news station KTVA:
The woman claimed Track Palin was calling her names, and in an effort to calm him down and “to scare him away from ‘touching her,’” she told him she had called the police.
“Palin approached [the woman] and struck her on the left side of her head near her eye with a closed fist,” police said in court documents. “Palin then kicked [her] on the right knee.”
The woman said he then grabbed her phone, which was on the ground next to her, and threw it across the driveway. She was able to retrieve the phone and headed inside the residence. Track Palin was reportedly already inside the residence and had a gun. She said he yelled, “do you think I won’t do it,” among other things, and was holding the gun in a way she believed he would kill himself. She ran out and then went and hid, police said.
Track Palin denied using a weapon during the altercation, “but stated that they were spread throughout both residences on the property,” police noted.
Track Palin had an injury on his face he claimed was caused when she “threw a bow,” or her elbow, at his face. The woman had a visible head injury, according to police, and was complaining of pain in her leg.
The takeaway was that Track was clearly out of control and assaulted this young woman repeatedly, and placed her in fear for her safety and his.
And I have to say the statement that there were guns "spread throughout both residences on the property" concerns me since we know that young children are on those premises at all hours of the day and night.
Alaska Dispatch added more detail about what started the altercation:
Palin told police he and the woman had been arguing over her communication with an ex-boyfriend.
“This angered Palin,” the affidavit says. “He stated that they had been arguing for most of the night.”
According to the affidavit, Palin told detectives the two had gone to dinner, then to his sister’s house and later to a piece of property he was considering buying. There, he said, they began to argue again. Palin accused the woman of driving drunk back to his sister's house, leaving him to walk back from the property.
The affidavit said the two later drove back to Palin’s parents’ house and continued to argue. Palin told police they argued verbally and that the woman “threw a ‘bow,” meaning an elbow, and that was how his face was injured.
The woman also said the two had been arguing for the better part of the night, and in the driveway of the Palin family home.

Now I was contacted by my sources in Wasilla last night as well, and I have a little more detail to add.
According to them after Jordan drove Track to the Palin compound, she tried to leave and Track threw himself on her windshield to prevent her from leaving.
It was then that he also pulled that gun, only according to my sources he put the barrel in his mouth and threatened to blow his brains out. They also identified this weapon, not as an assault rifle, but as a pistol.
However when she got out of the car that is when he assaulted her by punching and kicking her.
They were both hammered and Jordan was sobbing uncontrollable, and of course Track is barely coherent even when he is not drunk.
So there you have it, Palin family values once again on display for the whole world to see.
And while all of this was going on Track's parents were all the way down in the lower forty eight endorsing Donald Trump, because Sarah Palin is the very embodiment of conservative values and Christian morality.
