Sarah Palin’s oldest son arrested in domestic violence case

Police say a breath sample provided by Palin showed he had a blood alcohol level of 0.189.

The affidavit says other officers found the girlfriend hiding under a bed inside the home and crying.

The argument continued at the home, according to the affidavit, which says Palin struck the woman with his fist on the left side of her head near her eye. She curled up in the fetal position because she didn’t know what else he would do, the woman told police. She said he then kicked her in the knee and threw her phone across the driveway, according to the court document. The woman said she went inside after getting her phone.

Inside, Palin held the rifle, with the barrel just away from his face pointed to the side, the affidavit states. The affidavit adds that the woman told police Palin was yelling “Do you think I won’t do it?”

The girlfriend “was concerned that he would shoot himself and ran outside and around the house,” the affidavit says. “She didn’t see where Palin went, so she went inside and up the stairs, where she hid under a bed.”

It’s not the first encounter with the law for Palin or other members of his family. In September 2014, he and other Palins were involved in a brawl that broke out at a party in Anchorage. No arrests were made in the melee, and no one wanted to press charges. But according to a police report, Palin had blood around his mouth and his hands. He was belligerent until his mother told him to talk to a police officer.
