According to a report from Us Weekly, Sarah Palin’s oldest son, Track Palin, was released from a halfway house after he was arrested for domestic violence involving his girlfriend. TMZ reported that the Alaska Department of Corrections released Track from a residential center on the 24th of January, Thursday.
The outlet claims Track wore an electronic monitoring device as a bargain for an early release. Back in October 2018, Track was ordered by the judge to spend a full year in custody. The DA, Richard Allen, said Mr. Palin would likely not spend any time incarcerated.
Allegedly, Track was taken in by the police in Wasilla, Alaska, in September 2018, after he refused to let a woman leave his property. Track apparently took away her phone, hit her in the head, and refused her requests to contact friends and family.
As a consequence, police charged Track with domestic violence, interfering with a report of domestic violence, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. When he appeared in front of a judge, he pleaded “not guilty for sure” the publication claimed.
This isn’t the first time Track has gotten into trouble with the authorities either. In December 2017, the young man and his father, Todd Palin, got into a fight which led to his arrest. He pled guilty to first-degree criminal trespassing.
Around that same time, Track was on probation for pointing a gun at his then-girlfriend, in addition to striking her. In September, his reality star sister, Bristol Palin, addressed the charges against him and said that her brother was a grown man, and she didn’t have a thing to say about it.
The Teen Mom OG star said to reporters from Us Weekly that Track was “an adult,” and he makes his own decision the same way she does. As it was previously reported, Bristol is now the star of Teen Mom OG after the departure of Farrah Abraham.
Interestingly, Bristol and Track Palin come from a successful political family. Sarah even campaigned to be the vice president alongside the Republican candidate, John McCain, in 2008.
