Following the arrest of Track Palin on charges of domestic violence, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, his mother, is under fire for pointing the blame at President Barack Obama.
According to Inside Edition, Governor Palin is under pressure for connecting her son's arrest to President Obama. Track, 26-year-old Iraqi war veteran was arrested for allegedly punching his girlfriend and threatening to commit suicide.
Palin spoke on Wednesday during a rally in Tulsa and said his son, like other war veterans, came back hardened and wondering whether there is respect for them for what they sacrifice for the country.
"And that starts from the top. That comes from our own President. They have to look at him and wonder, 'do you know what we go through? Do you know what we're trying to do to secure America?" the source cited Palin.
The New York Times gathered from police documents that Track, the eldest son, was apprehended and charged on Tuesday in a domestic violence case filed by his girlfriend.
According to Wasilla Police Department affidavit, both Track and his girlfriend requested emergency dispatchers on Monday night after an argument escalated in his parents' house. The court records show Track was indicted with assault, interfering with reporting of a domestic crime, and a weapons charged. He pleaded not guilty in his arraignment on Tuesday with bail set at $1,500, the site stated.
Daily Mail confirmed from Wasilla police report that Track was intoxicated while he attacked his girlfriend and pointed an AR-15 rifle at his own head as they quarreled over her ex-boyfriend. When the police arrived at the Palin family home, his girlfriend was trembling under a bed. The victim was found with 'bruising and swelling around her left eye' claiming that Track had thrown her phone away when she tried to call 911.
Sarah Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee in 2008, is endorsing Donald J. Trump at a campaign event in Iowa. The attorney of the family asked for respect and privacy as Track is undergoing treatment.
