Track Palin was arrested for assaulting a woman, it’s his third arrest in three years

When Senator John McCain passed away, I spent too much time thinking about his legacy, how his legacy was whitewashed, and the 2008 election. The 2008 election was strange enough on its own, to live it in real time. But in retrospect, it was simply a harbinger of clusterf–ks to come. Sarah Palin was the proto-Trump. Her vile ignorance, hatefulness, contempt and hypocrisy were the stirrings of larger movements which came to fruition in the next decade, from white supremacists and neo-Nazis feeling empowered, to the Suicide Congressional Caucus, to Trump and our current predicament. Anyway, lost in the shuffle of larger political narratives is this: Sarah Palin’s family was always a damn train wreck. For the so-called party of family values, the Palins are a mess. Her son Track has been arrested AGAIN.

Sarah Palin’s oldest son has been arrested on new domestic violence charges in Alaska. Track Palin was busted Friday night after Alaska State Troopers responded to a report of a disturbance at his home in Wasilla. Cops say their investigation revealed he assaulted a female acquaintance at the residence, then took her phone away when she tried to call authorities.

Track allegedly resisted the troopers while being placed under arrest as well. The 29-year-old was arrested on charges of fourth-degree domestic violence assault, interfering with a report of domestic violence, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He’s being held without bail at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility.

This isn’t a first for Track either. He was arrested last December for allegedly breaking into his parent’s house and beating up his father — Sarah had to call the cops on him. That case is currently being heard in Alaska’s Veterans Court. He was also arrested in January 2016 after an altercation with his girlfriend at the time.

When Track was arrested in 2016, Sarah Palin blamed Obama, I sh-t you not. She claimed Track had PTSD from serving one tour in Iraq… in 2008, when Bush was president. She claimed that if Obama had been taking better care of veterans, then Track wouldn’t have assaulted his girlfriend and threatened the girlfriend with an automatic weapon. Sarah Palin was mysteriously quiet when Track was arrested last year – on Trump’s watch!! – for beating the crap out of his father while high on *something*. And so now Track has a THIRD arrest for violent assault in three years. And he resisted arrest. But he’s a white guy so it’s all cool, right? Sarcasm aside, did you know that even with these three arrests, Track is still legally allowed to have guns?

    It’s Obama’s fault. /s

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    The poisoned apple doesn’t fall far from the poisoned tree, are we surprised.

    Also whenever I see him name I always read it as ‘Trick Palin’.

  3. Erinn says:

    And after the first assault he shouldn’t have been owning any firearms. He also didn’t really do much in the way of ‘serving’. He was given cushy little jobs and never had to do what the others did. Alaska is insane with firearms and meth. So I mean, clearly all this horrible behavior is fine.

    But yeah… Obama’s fault, democratic conspiracy, her emails, etc etc.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      His “tour of duty” has never been clear to me. It was either jail or Iraq after he cut the brake lines on the school buses. But is a hastily arranged get-out-of-sight the same as actually enlisting? I read somewhere that he drove people around. It’s possible to be in Iraq and not be in the Army. Sarah Palin lies like a rug, so I assumed the PTSD explanation was total nonsense.

    • Janet says:

      Those “cushy little jobs” are still valid service, and still require trainung and getting screamed at constantly. Don’t be that person.

      • Lady D says:

        Do you know why he joined the army?

      • Erinn says:

        Yes, poor Track got screamed at constantly. I’m so sorry that he had to go through that after joining the army as an attempt to dodge punishment for his other issues. In high school he and his buddies were caught cutting SCHOOL BUS BRAKE LINES after stealing from a liquor store and going on a vandalism spree.

        Despite spending a year in Iraq in an infantry unit he did not earn his combat infantryman badge. He did not earn any war decorations. His mother, however, was happy to push the narrative of him being a combat veteran with PTSD and politicizing that story. She specifically used him having PTSD from combat as a way to both write off any wrong doing in his life and to rile her base up and propel her career. His record is relevant only because his MOTHER brought it up and used it to excuse all his problems.

        So I guess I will be ‘that person’ when it comes to arrogant, violent scumbags twisting their bad behavior into being caused by something that MANY veterans have to deal with in silence because of the lack of help. She’s creating the association that terrible people doing terrible things is okay if they were enlisted at one point. Excusing bad behavior and simultaneously linking that kind of behavior to vets that are dealing with PTSD but who don’t beat on their family.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        @Erin: Wow. I did not know all of that about his history. Between that and his pattern of domestic violence as an adult, it seems like this guy is going to get somebody killed one day- whether intentionally or unintentionally.

  4. BaronSamedi says:

    He gets zero passes for his behaviour.

    Still: PTSD in Veterans is a thing and it’s not like we can be surprise that he apparently has not been receiving the treatment he so obviously needs. I do laugh at the irony of his mother, who is Government and has ALL the tools to actually DO something about the state of Veteran’s Affairs throwing her hands up and blaming Obama.

    No, it’s not irony. It’s her living by the values her party represents.

    • Esmom says:

      I believe he needs treatment but I also believe his issues stem not from the military where he mostly worked a desk job but likely from a really messed up upbringing. I tend to think the family, long before Sarah was in the spotlight, put huge expectations on their oldest son and that the fame that came to their family was the last thing he needed.

      I don’t have much sympathy, though. Arguably they have plenty of resources but don’t seem to make his heath and well being a priority. As to him still being allowed to have guns, I have no words.

    • Jerusha says:

      He joined the Army because it was either that or jail after he and a friend drained the antifreeze from several school buses in the middle of Winter. The blocks cracked resulting in thousands of dollars of repairs. Sarah milked his “service” for all it was worth.

      • Scal says:

        He and a buddy got drunk and cut the brake lines on the school buses-not just the antifreeze. And when the Palin family fight happened in 2014 he was the one that was the most violent and had the most injuries.

        He’s a psychopath.

    • Ernestine says:

      I don’t think he was in combat at all, though. The PTSD is something his mother pushes.

    • Ange says:

      He was an awful criminal mess before he was forced to join the army so I’m highly doubting it’s PTSD now.

  5. grabbyhands says:

    Oh, it’s okay because women aren’t really people anyway, apparently. She probably did something to deserve it.

    And besides, this time it is probably Hilary’s fault.

    The gross thing is that there is probably someone out there that is thinking that for real.

  6. Daisyfly says:

    The dingleberry doesn’t hang far from the anus.

  7. Starryfish29 says:

    It’s only a matter of time until someone gets killed, that’s how it always ends with men who repeatedly get away with violent behavior.

  8. Who ARE these people? says:

    Line this story up with that of Brett Kavanaugh and those of children at the border being abused and challenge anyone who dare doubt survivors and their stories.

  9. Amelie says:

    I thought Track was married at one point (he was very briefly and he has a kid from that marriage) and while doing research it seems his younger sister Willow got married yesterday only one day after her brother got arrested! I’m assuming the wedding had long been planned since Willow apparently got engaged in December 2017 (she actually is wearing a really pretty dress in the pictures I’ve seen). So far Willow (who is basically a carbon copy of Bristol, I thought it was her in the pictures) seems to be the only Palin sibling who did not have a shotgun wedding due to a pregnancy which was the case for Track (he and his ex-wife welcomed their baby 3 months after their wedding). I know Bristol was on and off with her ex-husband and was supposed to get married because she was pregnant, it got messy so I can’t remember the details.

    Track’s ex-wife has never talked about her brief marriage but I do wonder if she suffered domestic abuse at his hands. It would explain why they were married for just a year and I’m assuming the Palins threw money at her to shut her up. This family is so messy.

    • Tiffany says:

      I thought his ex wife called the cops on him for domestic abuse and that was the reason for their divorce. I thought him assault on her was his first arrest on domestic charges.

      • Marlene says:

        Ex-wife, mother of 1st child = Britta Hanson.
        Ex-girlfriend, mother of 2nd child = Jordan Loewe.

        It was Loewe who called the cops on him in 2016 (first arrest), and it was Loewe he assaulted again this Friday.

      • Tiffany says:

        Thank you Marlene for the info. I would have looked it up, but just knowing that Google saw me typing their name in my search engine, *shudders* no telling what ads will pop up.

      • Amelie says:

        Woah thanks for the info. Did not realize he had a second kid with another woman.

      • Marlene says:

        You’re welcome.

        And if you’re further interested – earlier this year Jordan Loewe gave an extensive (and everything considered, very decent) interview about the abuse she suffered in the relationship with Track Palin. (Just google *her* name, it’ll come up). She is the first person who’s had the guts to speak out about how the family keeps covering up for him, and how that’s not helping him.

    Thought that was a photo of Sinead

  11. Anastasia says:

    He’s definitely a drug addict. I’d bet my house on it.

  12. someone says:

    Never hated Sarah Palin but didn’t think she deserved to be VP. She’s fine with state politics and shrew and good at t in her own way. I always thought the dynamics in that fmaily and many large families is so messed up, with the older children effectively taking care of the younger children. The only good thing I can say is that the family still is close and takes care of each other. As for all the shot gun weddings and drug use and stuff-isn’t this the same crisis that’s devastating rural America and lower income neighbourhoods?

    AS for Track(?), what a mess. I cannot make any excuses for someone this violent. The guy needs to be locked up for good and doesn’t deserve any more chances. It will be for his own good and for the rest of society!

    • whatWHAT? says:

      fine with state politics? is that why she quit halfway through her term as gov?

      and by “takes care” of each other, I suppose you mean that momma covers for son when he engages in criminal activity and beats up dad?

  13. Starkiller says:

    A white Republican male is a violent, inflamed ass boil? Colour me shocked.

  14. Vinot says:

    Even though my human side is wary of putting any traumatized veteran or violent person on reality tv, my craven side says that this is the kind of Palin-type f*ckery that I pray makes it on Bristol’s season of Teen Mom. Show me the brawls, show me mugshots, show me Todd and Bristol picking him up from court. And then send me to hell where I belong.

  15. lucy2 says:

    We really dodged a bullet with that family…only to be hit by a wrecking ball with the Trumps 8 years later. Ugh.
    He sounds rotten to the core. Ladies of Alaska, avoid that one, for your own safety.

  16. kellyrae says:

    And Bristol’s show Teen mom OG premieres tonight. They showed them planning Willow’s wedding on the preview. Most teen mom fans are outraged by Bristol being added to the show (to replace Farrah) But I’m pretty excited for the drama.

  17. Tw says:

    Teen mom and domestic violence. Family values party y’all

  18. Chrissy says:

    Strike three? Maybe a stint in jail will straighten him out. It would get him away from his crazy family.
