Hours before his mother became the latest Tea Partier to throw support behind Donald Trump, Track Palin was arrested in the family’s Alaska hometown of Wasilla on suspicion of assaulting a woman and carrying a gun while intoxicated.
Track Palin, 26, was arrested late on Monday night after authorities responded to a domestic disturbance call at a home in Wasilla, Alaska, police said in a statement.
“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,” the statement said.
Police provided no immediate further details.
Representatives for the Palin family could not immediately be reached for comment.
In 2014, the Palins made national headlines when, according to an Anchorage police report, a booze-fueled brawl erupted at an outdoor party late on Sept. 6 involving Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, their son Track and daughters Bristol and Willow.
