In regards to Track's arrest, the Palins' attorney John Tiemessen gave a statement to NBC News. "Given the nature of actions addressed last night by law enforcement and the charges involved, the Palins are unable to comment further," he said. "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."
As USA Today notes, Track has gotten himself into trouble with the law at least once before. In 2016, he was "suspected of punching his girlfriend, who then became concerned that Palin was going to shoot himself with a rifle." Track later took a plea deal.
