Sarah Palin’s son Track arrested on burglary, assault charge in Alaskan town where his mom was mayor

Track Palin, the Army veteran son of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, was busted on burglary and assault charges Saturday, court records show.

The 28-year-old was arraigned Sunday morning after his arrest in Wasilla, where his mother served as mayor before running alongside Sen. John McCain during the 2008 presidential election.

Palin also faces a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge for causing nearly $1,000 in property damage following an unspecified domestic violence incident, according to records.

Wasilla police did not immediately respond to a request for more information and the victim in Palin’s latest arrest was not identified.

John Tiemessen, a lawyer for the Palin family, declined to comment on the arrest.

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

“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.”

Palin — the oldest of the former governor’s five children — remains in custody at the Mat-Su Pre-Trial Facility in Palmer.

Palin was arrested after a domestic violence dispute with his ex-girlfriend, Jordan Loewe, in January 2016. He drunkenly punched and kicked her before threatening to take his own life, according to a police report.

A police officer found Loewe hiding under the bed after she called 911, documents show.

Charges of assault and interfering with a police report were dismissed but Palin pleaded guilty to brandishing a weapon.

Palin’s firebrand mom said the arrest stemmed from post-traumatic stress disorder due to his military service.
