Sarah Palin’s oldest son is behind bars.
Track Palin was arrested shortly after 10 pm on Monday night after a police investigation found that he ‘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 New York Daily News reports that 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 female victim, 22, had ‘bruising and swelling around her left eye’ and claimed that Track threw her phone down the driveway when she tried to call police.
This all happened at Sarah’s Wasilla home according to court documents, and Track had a 0.189 blood alcohol level according to police.
‘Upon contacting Palin, he was uncooperative, belligerent, and evasive with my initial line of questions,’ wrote investigator Andrew Kappler in his criminal complaint.
‘Due to Palin’s escalating hostility, the unknown whereabouts of the 911 caller, and officer safety, Palin was placed into handcuffs.’

Allegations: An investigation found he ‘committed a domestic violence assault on a female and interfered with her ability to report a crime of domestic violence’
Track’s girlfriend ran out of the house after the young man started ‘holding onto a gun, yelling “do you think I’m a p—y?” and “do you think I won’t do it?”‘
Officers later found her crying as she hid under a bed.
Track told police the argument began after he learned she had been speaking with an ex-boyfriend.
He also claims that the woman elbowed him during the fight, but she was not arrested or charged with any crime.
Gawker was the first to report the news of Track’s arrest, which came the night before his mother very publicly endorsed Donald Trump for president.
She did not mention her son’s legal troubles during her speech.
The Wasilla Police Department said in a statement; ‘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.’

Track, 26, was briefly married May 2011 but the pair divorced a little over a year later.
He and his ex-wife Britta Hanson have a daughter Kyla who was born three months after their wedding.
Hanson told Radar Online she was not involved in Monday night’s incident or even aware of what happened between Track and the unknown woman.
She also said of her ex; ‘We are on speaking terms. We have a cordial relationship about our daughter. That is as far as it goes.’
Track and the rest of his family had a run in with police a little over a year ago in September 2014 when a fight broke out at a party in Wasilla.
Track also reportedly broke a rib in the incident, and during his interview with cops spelled his last name wrong at one point.
Using the military alphabet he told officers it was spelled, ‘Papa, Alfa, Lima, India, Mike, Oscar.’
‘Palimo?’ asked the officer.
He also had some not so nice things to say about one of his friends who was jumped, saying of the man; ‘He’s like a little pu**y you know what I’m saying?’ says the young man, referring a man named Steve whose last name may possibly be Wilcox.
‘Like he’s not gonna fight nobody. … Most innocent, basically a gay guy, but he’s not.’
In his interview Track also stated that he could have beaten up every man at the party in a one-on-one fight, describing the men he claimed attacked him as ‘little bi***es’ and describing the scene at the party before the fight as ‘fu**ing kosher.’
Track was described as a victim in the fight by police.
The young man was preparing to ship out to Iraq in September 2008 when his mother took the stage at the Republican convention in her first major speech after being named as John McCain’s choice for vice president.
He has kept a relatively low profile over the years, a far cry from his younger sister Bristol.
