Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s son, Track Palin, reportedly appeared in court on Saturday after he was arrested the night before in Alaska on domestic violence charges.

The 29-year-old was taken into custody by Alaska State Troopers on Friday night after authorities received a call about an disturbance at a residence in Wasilla.

After state troopers arrived at the scene, they determined he “assaulted an acquaintance at his residence,” local authorities said in an online dispatch

Track Palin reportedly took a phone belonging to the acquaintance, whose identity has not yet been revealed, and prevented her from contacting the police, according to the dispatch. 


Authorities said Track Palin “physically resisted troopers” while being apprehended.

According to a local CBS affiliate, Track Palin is now facing four charges, including fourth-degree domestic violence assault and disorderly conduct.

While appearing in court on Saturday, he reportedly stated he was "not guilty, for sure" to the four charges. 

Palin is currently being held on a $500 unsecured bond in a facility in Palmer. He will reportedly have to have a pretrial ankle bracelet installed if released. 

Palin has also reportedly been told to stay away from the alleged victim's home and workplace and has been instructed to only communicate with her via written contact. 

Track Palin was arrested last December after he allegedly beat his father at his parents’ home.

He was also arrested in January 2016 on domestic violence and weapons charges after allegedly hitting his girlfriend.
