Track Palin, Sarah Palin’s son, was arrested and charged Monday with domestic violence among other counts, CBS reported.

The police department in Wasilla, Alaska, told CBS that they encountered Track Palin after responding to a residence for a report of a disturbance at about 10 p.m.

According to court documents, Track Palin punched his girlfriend in the eye, kicked her and then threatened to shoot himself in the head with an AR-15 assault rifle.

“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,” police told CBS in a statement.

He was held without bail and was expected to be arraigned Tuesday. CBS reported that Track Palin was charged with three misdemeanor counts for assault, allegedly possessing the gun while intoxicated, and for interfering with a domestic violence report.

    I would like to find this funny, but it’s not. His mother has taught him nothing useful in life and it shows. Why can’t Wasilla natives learn to steer clear of this toxic family?

  4. Does anyone expect something different with parents like he has?

  5. You just lost your right to legally possess a gun, ya fuckin’ moran!
