|Here is a better picture to replace the crappy one I had before.|
So as I am sure all of you know we, and apparently everybody else, reported yesterday that Track Palin had been arrested for getting drunk and punching a woman in the face.
We now know for certain that the woman was his girlfriend of one year, Jordan Loewe.
Here is more courtesy of the AP:
According to the three-page affidavit, both Palin and his girlfriend called 911 that night. Police Officer Andrew Kappler wrote that he arrived at the Wasilla home and found Track Palin walking outside and talking on a phone. The officer said Palin had an injury to his right eye and surrounding area, smelled strongly of alcohol and acted with escalating hostility, prompting Kappler to put him in handcuffs.
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."
So now we learn that Track had a blood alcohol level of 0.189, which is considered legally drunk, and then some.
Here is a little more detail from Alaska news station KTVA:
The woman claimed Track Palin was calling her names, and in an effort to calm him down and “to scare him away from ‘touching her,’” she told him she had called the police.
“Palin approached [the woman] and struck her on the left side of her head near her eye with a closed fist,” police said in court documents. “Palin then kicked [her] on the right knee.”
The woman said he then grabbed her phone, which was on the ground next to her, and threw it across the driveway. She was able to retrieve the phone and headed inside the residence. Track Palin was reportedly already inside the residence and had a gun. She said he yelled, “do you think I won’t do it,” among other things, and was holding the gun in a way she believed he would kill himself. She ran out and then went and hid, police said.
Track Palin denied using a weapon during the altercation, “but stated that they were spread throughout both residences on the property,” police noted.
Track Palin had an injury on his face he claimed was caused when she “threw a bow,” or her elbow, at his face. The woman had a visible head injury, according to police, and was complaining of pain in her leg.
The takeaway was that Track was clearly out of control and assaulted this young woman repeatedly, and placed her in fear for her safety and his.
And I have to say the statement that there were guns "spread throughout both residences on the property" concerns me since we know that young children are on those premises at all hours of the day and night.
Alaska Dispatch added more detail about what started the altercation:
Palin told police he and the woman had been arguing over her communication with an ex-boyfriend.
“This angered Palin,” the affidavit says. “He stated that they had been arguing for most of the night.”
According to the affidavit, Palin told detectives the two had gone to dinner, then to his sister’s house and later to a piece of property he was considering buying. There, he said, they began to argue again. Palin accused the woman of driving drunk back to his sister's house, leaving him to walk back from the property.
The affidavit said the two later drove back to Palin’s parents’ house and continued to argue. Palin told police they argued verbally and that the woman “threw a ‘bow,” meaning an elbow, and that was how his face was injured.
The woman also said the two had been arguing for the better part of the night, and in the driveway of the Palin family home.

Now I was contacted by my sources in Wasilla last night as well, and I have a little more detail to add.
According to them after Jordan drove Track to the Palin compound, she tried to leave and Track threw himself on her windshield to prevent her from leaving.
It was then that he also pulled that gun, only according to my sources he put the barrel in his mouth and threatened to blow his brains out. They also identified this weapon, not as an assault rifle, but as a pistol.
However when she got out of the car that is when he assaulted her by punching and kicking her.
They were both hammered and Jordan was sobbing uncontrollable, and of course Track is barely coherent even when he is not drunk.
So there you have it, Palin family values once again on display for the whole world to see.
And while all of this was going on Track's parents were all the way down in the lower forty eight endorsing Donald Trump, because Sarah Palin is the very embodiment of conservative values and Christian morality.
