Track Palin on House Arrest, Ex-Wife Granted Protective Order

Track Palin has been placed on house arrest after being charged with felony first-degree burglary and misdemeanor fourth-degree assault following a domestic violence incident with his father, Todd Palin.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that Track, 28, sat in silence in Palmer District Court on Wednesday, December 20, as Magistrate Judge Tara Logsdon approved his house arrest with electronic monitoring. He is not allowed to go within an “exclusion zone” around his parents’ home or near places that sell alcohol. He cannot drink and can only take prescription drugs as prescribed. He must also take a breathalyzer test at least six times a day using a facial recognition device that picks up on alcohol.

In addition, all weapons must be removed from Track’s home. He can only travel to medical appointments and his job at the drilling company Alaska Directional LLC.

Track’s legal woes have also resulted in his ex-wife, Britta Hanson, being granted a protective order against him, according to legal documents obtained by The Blast. Hanson, to whom Track was married from 2011 to 2012, reportedly claims in the filing that he was “cussing and yelling” and “grabbed me and pushed me into a wall” during an altercation on November 25. According to The Blast, she is afraid for the safety of the former couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Kyla. Hanson and Kyla also reportedly created a safeword (“Mom, can you sing me a bedtime song?”) should the child ever feel like she’s in danger.

As previously reported, Track was arrested on domestic violence charges at his parents’ home in Wasilla, Alaska, on Saturday, December 16. Mom Sarah Palin told police that Track allegedly broke a window and pushed his father to the ground before beating him on the head. The former governor and Todd are also the parents of Bristol, 27, Willow, 23, Piper, 16, and Trig, 9.
