A weekend house party in Anchorage turned into the Palin family brawl where it is alleged the entire family got in on the fight complete with punches thrown, a bloody nose and Track strutting around shirtless flipping the bird. The Palin clan attended the 40th birthday party for a champion snowmobile racer and alcohol flowed for a while before the full-blown “drunken” fiasco broke out, according to the New York Post on Sept. 12.
The brawl involved about 20 people at a home in South Anchorage, and while some report it was a party for a snowmobile racer, party goers claim it was a joint birthday party for both the racer and Todd Palin. According to the Alaska Dispatch, the Palins were at the center of this fight.
To set the scene, Sarah, Todd, Bristol, Track, and Willow pulled up to the house in a stretch Hummer. The party seemed to go off without a hitch until Bristol started throwing punches at the host because a boy wanted to “have a go” at her sister Willow.
Bristol unleashed her fury in the form of rapid punches to this unnamed man. After stumbling to the floor, she was ushered outside. Throwing one Palin out of a party got the rest of the brood’s gander up and they weren’t about to bow out gracefully, according to witnesses.
Once outside the Palin family banded together and a brawl ensued. Track ripped off his shirt, much like a wrestler might in the beginning of a match. Even after he threw a few punches he remained shirtless and strutted around the front of the house flipping folks the bird.
No one is quite sure how Todd Palin ended up with a bloody nose, but apparently someone clipped him because the blood was flowing. Sarah Palin took a political stand yelling to people, “Don’t you know who I am?” A response from someone in the crowd to the former vice-president candidate was, “This isn’t some damned hillbilly reality show!”
To add to the scene just imagine a live band playing music as the Palin clan took on the party in a brawl. Witnesses say the band didn’t miss a beat and continued playing as the “drunken” brawl came to an end with police intervening. The Palin family was asked to leave the party, according to the New York Daily News.
Anchorage police confirmed a fight occurred and alcohol was a factor in this fight. While there is some discrepancy as to how this brawl started, police did confirm “some of the Palin family members were in attendance,” reports Alaska Dispatch News.
Now for the damage control, it appears that Sarah Palin was “traveling” on Saturday, the reported day of the fight. This is what she posted on her Facebook page. A witness at the party called that statement “a load of moose manure,” saying she was there. The witness posted “Interesting. . . pretty sure you were not traveling and you and family were on the Southside causing chaos. Saw it happen. Don’t fib.”
No one wanted to press charges when the police arrived, but law enforcement won’t release a written report, as the incident is still under investigation. The cops report the “case is still open,” and depending on their findings the decision to file any charges will be made when their investigation is complete.
Oh that Palin brood, they stick together! It sounds as if this was one event where Sarah’s clout didn’t mean a thing, as it appears it was every man or woman for themselves in this backyard brawl.
