Todd Palin Threatened Son Track With a Gun Before His Arrest (UPDATE)


UPDATE (12/19/17 at 10:37 a.m. ET):

Track Palin was arrested over the weekend after he broke into his parents’ home and assaulted his father, Todd Palin.

In fact, Sarah Palin was the one who called the police on her son.

According to the Anchorage Daily News, the former Alaska Governor called around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 16 and said her son was “freaking out and was on some type of medication.”

The 28-year-old was coming over to confront his father over an argument involving a truck.

“Track told him he was (going to) come anyway to beat his ass.”

Todd met his son at the door with a gun, but Track broke through a window, tackled his dad to the ground, and hit him in the head.

Todd was able to escape the home, but he had cuts on his head and was bleeding from his ear.

Then, according to police reports obtained by Radar Online, he called the police “peasants” when they came to arrest him.

“Given the nature of actions addressed last night by law enforcement and the charges involved, the Palins are unable to comment further,” their attorney John Tiemessen said in a statement to NBC News.

“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.”

The father of two was also arrested in January 2016 after he reportedly drunkenly assaulted a woman while in possession of a firearm.

The officer who responded to the call at the time said he was "uncooperative, belligerent and evasive with my initial line of questioning.”

At the time, his politician mother seemed to blame his arrest on PTSD after serving for a year in Iraq.

"My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country," she said at the time after alluding to the arrest.

Track has one child with his ex-wife, Britta Hanson, and another with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Loewe.

He was married to Britta from 2011 to 2012.
