19 Dec 2017

Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin's oldest son has been charged with beating up his father, the media reported. Court records showed on Monday that the incident took place at the Palin home in Wasilla, Alaska, where Track Palin bloodied his father, Todd, in a dispute over a truck on December 16, reports CNN. The 28-year-old was arrested on three charges, including assault. The dispute began when he called to say he wanted to come get the truck, and his father refused, according to court documents. Track Palin called the officers on the scene "peasants" and told them to abandon their weapons when they attempted to communicate with him, the records said.  At one point, he got onto the garage roof before eventually being detained. Sarah Palin said her son was "freaking out" and "was on some type of medication", reports CNN. The incident is not his first arrest related to domestic violence.  He was arrested in 2016 and charged with domestic violence assault involving a female, interfering with a report of domestic violence and possession of a weapon while intoxicated. Sarah Palin attributed her son's actions in 2016 to his time serving overseas.
