ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The elder son of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin turned himself in to an Anchorage halfway house Wednesday to begin a year in custody, following his conviction for assaulting his father, an official said.

Track Palin was initially scheduled to enter the halfway house Oct. 31 after a judge decided new assault allegations disqualified him from a court program aimed at rehabilitating veterans and said he would have to serve time instead.

But the 29-year-old Army veteran won a delay after his lawyer said a bed at an Anchorage treatment hospital for veterans became available. He checked into the halfway house Wednesday morning, said Trey Watson of Geo Reentry of Alaska Inc., which operates the halfway house.

Palin in December 2017 was accused of breaking into his parents' home and leaving his father, Todd, bleeding from cuts on his head, authorities have said.

5. 'beautiful family' lol

surprised she wasn’t present at McCain’s funeral. After all, he is remembered by most people only for his 2008 campaign with Palin.

6. That is so odd, is it not? Thanks for pointing it out.

Very shabby, trashy group, the snowbillies.

It wasn't anyone intelligent who suggested McCain choose her as his running mate.

12. You can blame Steve Schmidt for that

He and others associated with the failed 2008 campaign were not invited to the funeral either. Seems petty to me.

17. Don't blame Steve Schmidt for that one.

He had no part in that.

It was right wing christian zealot Ralph Reed, president of The Christian Coalition. He demanded that, after years of the repubs paying lip service to evangelicals but not committing to their agenda, they chose someone that The Christian Coalition wanted or else they'd revolt and take votes with them. We saw an interview with him immediately (and I mean like minutes) after McCain made the announcement. We had never hear of her before this. I will never forget a friend of mine asked "Is she the sister of Michael Palin (of Monty Python fame) ?" Well, no, but, then again . . . .

13. She wasn't invited, it was reported.

Who remembers McCain only for his 2008 campaign? He's been in the Senate and a national figure for decades. He'd run for President before.

18. He's had anger issues his whole life

I've always thought that he attacked his father in what the family called Todd's "snow machine" accident in 2016. He had already hit his girlfriend earlier in the year.
