The charges include felony burglary, assault in the fourth degree, and criminal mischief for causing property damage between $250 and $999 in Wasilla, Alaska, according to the court records, NBC reported.


“Given the nature of actions addressed last night by law enforcement and the charges involved, the Palins are unable to comment further,” said John Tiernessen, attorney for Sarah Palin and husband Todd Palin in a Sunday statement to NBC News.


“They ask that the family’s privacy is respected during this challenging situation just as others dealing with a struggling family member would also request,” Tiernessen added.


A woman who answered the phone at Mat-Su Pretrial Facility in Palmer, Alaska said that Track Palin was listed Sunday evening as being held there, NBC News reported.


Track Palin also was arrested in January 2016 on domestic violence charges. An officer who responded to the 911 call in the 2016 case said Palin was “uncooperative, belligerent and evasive with my initial line of questioning,” NBC News reported.


Sarah Palin suggested after the 2016 incident that post-traumatic stress disorder was a cause of her son’s behavior after being deployed for a year in Iraq.


“My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened,” Palin said, referring to the arrest at the time, according to Time magazine.
