Track Palin, Son of Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Arrested on Domestic Violence Charge

One of the sons of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence assault Monday night, according to the Wasilla Police Department.

In the midst of a violent argument in his girlfriend, Track Palin, 26, allegedly pointed a gun at his head and threatened to shoot, NBC News reported. He assaulted her, interfered with her ability to report domestic violence and had a firearm in his possession while he was intoxicated, the department said in a news release Tuesday.

He was being held without bail until his arraignment on three charges, police said: "assault in the fourth degree (domestic violence), interfering with a domestic violence report, and misconduct involving weapons." Alaska court records classified the charges as misdemeanors.

The records said Palin was scheduled to appear in court for his arraignment Monday, but no defense attorney was listed. It wasn't immediately clear if Palin had retained an attorney.

Palin's court appearance was scheduled just hours after Donald Trump announced his mother had endorsed him for president. The Trump campaign said Sarah Palin planned to join him on for campaign events on Wednesday. She didn't immediately release her own statement regarding the endorsement.
