According to court records obtained by the Anchorage Daily News, Mrs. Palin called police Saturday night from her Wasilla home to report that her 28-year-old Track Palin was "freaking out and was on some type of medication".

Todd Palin said he told Track Palin not to come but that his son said he would come anyway to beat him up.

The son of former Alaska governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Track Palin, was arrested for domestic violence over the weekend.

The affidavit states that Todd Palin was bleeding from cuts on his head.

Track Palin told police he broke a window, disarmed his father and put him on the ground. The dispute began when he called to say he wanted to come get the truck, and his father refused, according to court documents.

No attorney was listed for Track Palin.
