Politician’s son arrested


ANCHORAGE: The elder son of former Republican vice-presidenti­al nominee Sarah Palin was in jail on Sunday, facing assault and burglary charges in her home state of Alaska.

Track Palin, 28, appeared in state court in Palmer, Alaska, on a felony burglary charge and misdemeano­ur assault and criminal mischief charges. All the charges involved domestic violence, the records indicated. It is not clear whether he entered a plea.

In the past, his legal troubles have prompted his mother to question the support available for military veterans like her son, who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress.

“Given the nature of actions, the Palins are unable to comment further,” said the family’s attorney, John Tiemessen. – Reuters/African News Agency (ANA)
