Sarah Palin's Son Arrested For Second Time On Domestic Violence Charges

Former Governor of Alaska and U.S. Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has more family drama to deal with this holiday season. Her eldest son was arrested on charges of domestic violence. This is the second time in two years that the eldest Palin child faced domestic violence charges.

Ever since Sarah Palin got national attention when she was selected to be John McCain's running mate in the 2008 election, the Palin family have seemed to suffer from a series of unfortunate events. Palin not only lost the election, but she and her family became the subject of brutal treatment from the media and much of the public. She ended up resigning from her position as governor because she claims she couldn't do her job with the constant harassment, including multiple frivolous lawsuits filed against her.

During the election, Palin's family were the target of scandal after scandal. One issue that got major coverage was the fact that the conservative Christian family's teen daughter, Bristol, was pregnant out of wedlock. Because Sarah Palin was a staunch supporter of sex education being reduced to abstinence-only education, it made the then-44-year-old grandmother-to-be look fairly foolish, but she reassured everyone that Bristol would be marrying her boyfriend, Levi Johnson.

The shotgun wedding never took place. Instead, Johnson went public making several accusations against his baby momma’s family, including the allegation that Palin knew he was sleeping with her teen daughter. The family had a battle with Bristol’s ex. Making matters worse later, Bristol, who had become an advocate for abstinence-only education, got pregnant out of wedlock again. When she announced her second child she complained that she didn’t want to hear any lectures.

It came out that Sarah's husband, Todd Palin, was a member of a party that seeks Alaska's succession from the union. That's not the most pro-American party for a Republican politician's husband.

Topping it off, Diana Palin, Todd's sister, was indicted for burglary, theft and trespassing. She was aided and abetted by her 4-year-old daughter.

It doesn’t look like the scandals are going to stop, but now the focus has been on Palin’s son. In January of 2016 28-year-old Track Palin was arrested on charges of domestic violence and weapons charges after he allegedly hit his girlfriend in the face. The girlfriend was also allegedly worried after the incident that Track was going to shoot himself.

Mrs. Palin tried to derail attention from her son by dragging then-president Barack Obama into the mix.

"I guess it's kind of the elephant in the room because my own family going through what we're going through today, with my son, a combat vet, having served in the striker brigade fighting for you all America in the war zone," the former governor said at a Trump campaign rally. “I can certainly relate with other families who feel these ramifications of some PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with."

Track was arrested again and this time he has been charged with felony burglary, misdemeanor reckless assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief for causing up to $500 in property damage. Each of the charges were linked to domestic violence, according to the court documents online.

Track was arraigned on Sunday morning. Local prosecutors and police aren't responding to questions regarding the case and a representative for the Palin family could not be reached for comment.
