Sarah Palin's son arrested over domestic violence claims

Track Palin, the oldest son of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, has been arrested again on charges related to domestic violence.

He was arraigned on Sunday morning on three counts of felony burglary, misdemeanour reckless assault and misdemeanour criminal mischief.

He remained in custody in Palmer, Alaska, as of Sunday afternoon.

Palin previously faced domestic violence charges in 2016.

Court records said he was suspected of punching his girlfriend, who then became concerned that Palin was going to shoot himself with a rifle.

He took a plea deal that resulted in some of the charges being dismissed and he pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm while intoxicated.

Attorney John Tiemessen, who said he represents Sarah Palin, acknowledged the arrest on Sunday and asked for privacy.
