Track Palin is going to rehab instead of jail for domestic violence charges. Sarah Palin's oldest son, Track, was arrested back in January when he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend at the time and then threatened to commit suicide. The Alaska Dispatch News reported on Saturday that Track Palin is escaping jail time by accepting a plea deal that drops two out of three charges in exchange for spending time in a "therapeutic program" for alcohol-related treatment.
As a veteran for serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq for one year in 2008, Track Palin was able to opt into a special veteran's court in Anchorage, Alaska, for a case against him stemming from domestic violence charges in January. Track Palin, 27, was arrested at the home of Todd and Sarah Palin on January 18 in Wasilla, Alaska, after allegedly punching his girlfriend in the face and then threatening to commit suicide with an AR-15 rifle.
