Bristol Palin, in a newly released police audio recording, delivers a tearful but expletive-laced tirade to police about the abuse she claims she suffered in the now-infamous “Palin Family Brawl” in Anchorage, Alaska, on September 6. At one point, the 23-year-old eldest daughter of former Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin sobs, “They took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f*****g shoes and I’m just left here!”
The police audio of the Bristol Palin statement can be heard above, courtesy of the celebrity news site TMZ.
Warning: the audio contains numerous expletives spoken by Bristol Palin, and could be considered offensive by some listeners.
Earlier Tuesday, Anchorage police released a batch of photos from the aftermath of the brawl, which involved four members of the Sarah Palin family, including Bristol, Palin’s younger daughter Willow, her son Track and husband Todd.
Sarah Palin herself has not been mentioned as becoming physically embroiled in the melee, which involved about 20 people, but earlier media reports described her standing to the side screaming, “Don’t you know who I am?” But the police report does not quote Palin using those words.
Neither Sarah nor Bristol Palin, in fact no members of the Palin family, have spoken publicly about the brawl or even acknowledged that any such event actually took place. The newly released police audio is the first time a Palin family member has been heard saying anything about what led up to the brawl.
In the police interview, Bristol Palin tells an unidentified Anchorage officer that the fight began when, shortly after the Palin family arrived as a party in Anchorage at a home owned by Korey Klingenmeyer, her sister Willow told her that “an old lady” had shoved her.
“Oh f*****g hell no,” Bristol said to police, decsribing her reaction. “No one is going to touch my sister.”
She then tells the officer that Klingemeyer, whom she says she did not know and had never seen before, started the melee by coming “out of nowhere” and attacking her when she tried to confront the woman who allegedly pushed Willow Palin.
She says that the homeowner called her a “c**t” and a “s**t” and physically abused and humiliated her, causing her to expose her underwear in public.
“A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet in my dress — in my thong dress in front of everybody,” Bristol Palin describes in the recording, going on to allege that Klingenmeyer told her, “Come on you c**t, get the f**k out of here. Come on you s**t, get the f**k out of here.”
The account differs sharply from that told by Klingemeyer and others in the police report, who allege that Bristol Palin punched him repeatedly when he asked her to leave the party for being drunk.
