Former Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R-AK) eldest son was recently arrested on domestic violence charges, according to The Los Angeles Times.
The Times on Sunday reported that Track Palin, 28, was arrested the day before in his family’s hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.
Track Palin was arraigned early Sunday on three counts: felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief for causing up to $500 in property damage.
The three charges were all related to domestic violence, according to online court records, but further details about what happened in Wasilla were not immediately available.
The felony burglary charge indicates that Track Palin allegedly hurt or attempted to hurt someone while committing burglary.
Track Palin remained held at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility in Palmer, Alaska as of Sunday afternoon.
Saturday’s arrest marked the second time in two years that Track Palin has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.
Track Palin was also arrested last year on domestic violence-related charges after he was suspected of punching his girlfriend.
Court records state that the woman then became concerned that Track Palin was going to shoot himself with a rifle.
Track Palin took a plea deal that resulted in some of the charges getting dismissed, but he pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm while intoxicated, a misdemeanor.
The woman eventually filed for custody of the couple’s child, and last January she requested a protective order against Track Palin.
Sarah Palin served as Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) running mate after he became the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee.
Former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden ultimately defeated the pair for the first of their two terms in the White House.
Sarah Palin has since become a television personality who boasts a strong following in conservative circles, especially with Tea Party Republicans.
