POLICE HAVE RELEASED a report that details what happened during a brawl involving the family of former US vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

The fight broke out at a house party in Anchorage on 6 September last. Some 20 people were involved but no arrests were made.

The report includes allegations that Palin’s daughter Bristol punched the host of the house party, Korey Klingenmeyer, in the face several times.

Palin, who was also the governor of Alaska, was at the party but is not mentioned in the report as being involved in the brawl.

The family was celebrating Todd Palin’s birthday (Sarah’s husband) and arrived at the party in a white limousine, according to police.

In his report, officer John Daily wrote that when he arrived at the scene, Palin’s son Track had blood around his mouth and his hands, and he appeared to have an injury under one eye. Track allegedly refused to talk to Daily at first but did so once his mother intervened.

Track told Daily that ”some guys were talking rudely to his sisters, making them cry”, adding that someone “sucker-punched” a friend to the ground.

Todd added that when the friend got knocked down, “everything escalated, and it was a situation they couldn’t walk away from.”

Fighting back

Bristol Palin told another officer that a woman had pushed her sister Willow.

Bristol said she was headed toward the woman to confront her when the homeowner pushed her to the ground and repeatedly called her derogatory names. She was not injured, according to the report.

The Palins’ lawyer John Tiemessen declined to comment on the issue.

The Associated Press tried to contact Klingenmeyer for comment but he didn’t immediately respond.

After the incident, he told an officer that he fought back after Track and another man started shouting at him and  throwing punches.

Klingenmeyer had minor bruises and cuts to his face, according to the officer, who wrote that as he was speaking with the homeowner, Todd and Track Palin “began getting involved in a verbal altercation with Korey again”.

Police said officers eventually separated the crowd.

Palin did not reference the release of the report on her social media accounts, instead tweeting a video of an ex-Army veteran throwing the first pitch at a baseball game.

Since quitting politics, the well-known Republican has gone on to star in her own reality TV show and recently launched her own web TV channel.
