They were responding to reports of a disturbance at the home, according to an official dispatch, which revealed that Track had ‘assaulted’ a female ‘acquaintance’ at his home and that when the woman tried to call authorities, he had stopped her from calling by taking away her phone.
Authorities also said that while he was being placed under arrest, Track had resisted the troopers, leading to a charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
He was faces domestic violence charges, specifically Assault IV (DV) and Interfering with a Report of a DV.
Track was remanded to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility and appeared in court in Palmer, Alaska on Saturday — the day of his sister’s wedding.
Track said that he was ‘not guilty, for sure’ of the charges, according to KTUU.
The judge told Track that he can only have written contact with the unnamed woman allegedly involved in the domestic incident and that he must stay away from her. Track was also told he could not have any deadly weapons.
If found guilty of the three Class A misdemeanor charges, he could see up to a year jail, in addition to a $25,000 fine. For the fourth, Class B misdemeanor charge, he could get up to a day in jail and $2,000 fine.

KTUU reported that Track is now being held on a $500 unsecured bond, but would be given a pretrial ankle bracelet if he is released from custody.
The day Track was arrested, the other members of the Palin brood were at Willow’s rehearsal dinner, about an hour and a half away from Track’s home in Wasilla.

The Palin clan in a happier time. Track, an Army veteran, who spent a year deployed in Iraq in 2007, was also part of a drunken brawl involving several members of the Palin family in 2014

Friday’s arrest is just the latest in a string of arrests for Track.
He was arrested last December after breaking into his parents’ home and assaulting his father, Todd, after Sarah called the police on him.
That case is currently pending in Alaska Veterans court, but this latest arrest also isn’t the first time he’s been arrested for domestic violence.
Track was arrested in January 2016 on domestic violence charges after an altercation with his then-girlfriend.
A New York Daily News report revealed Track allegedly punched and kicked his girlfriend, and then held an assault rifle to his head, threatening to kill himself.
‘Do you think I’m a p***?,’ Track allegedly said, along with, ‘Do you think I won’t do it?’
The Army veteran, who spent a year deployed in Iraq in 2007, was also part of a drunken brawl involving several members of the Palin family in 2014.
