Sarah Palin’s oldest son, Track, is charged with assaulting his father in the family’s home in Wasilla, Alaska.

A sworn statement from a Wasilla police officer says Sarah Palin told the police Saturday night that Track Palin was “freaking out” and on some kind of medication.

The statement said Todd Palin was bleeding from cuts on his head. He told the police the dispute began when Track Palin called wishing his truck.

Todd Palin said he told Track Palin not to come and pulled his gun “to protect his family.”

Track Palin told the police that he tried to get in the door, but it did not open and he broke a window and disabled his father.

Track Palin was accused of the charges, including felony assault, on Sunday.

Court documents say Track Palin, the oldest son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was arrested on charges related to domestic violence again.

He was arraigned Sunday morning on three counts of felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

He remained trapped in Palmer, Alaska, as of Sunday afternoon.

Track Palin previously faced domestic violence charges in 2016. Court records say that he was suspected of punching his girlfriend, who then became concerned that Palin was going to shoot himself with a rifle. He took a plea deal that resulted in a number of the charges being dismissed and he pleaded guilty to the offence in the possession of a firearm while intoxicated.

Attorney John Tiemessen, who said that he represents Sarah Palin, recognised by the arrest of Sunday and asked for privacy.

No lawyer was listed for the Track Palin.
