Sarah Palin’s troubled son Track was arrested for assaulting his own father while under the influence, court documents claim – and now the former Alaskan district attorney who oversaw the prosecution of his 2016 assault case is begging him to get help.

In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, former Anchorage District Attorney Clinton Campion recalled Track's case immediately on Monday after the news broke that the former vice presidential candidate’s son appeared on his parents’ doorstep Saturday night around 8:30 pm to fight his father Todd over a truck.

Campion was the DA at the time of Track’s last assault case, when he was arrested on charges of 4th degree assault, interfering with a domestic violence charge, and possession of a weapon while intoxicated. In July 2016, Track pleaded guilty to the third charge, and the court dismissed the two others. In addition, his case was transferred to the jurisdiction of the Anchorage “Veterans Court.”

This allowed the veteran to bypass jail time and instead enter a therapeutic program. On Monday. Campion told Radar that program was put in place for individuals like Track “to get him some help.”

“Obviously that didn’t work out,” Campion continued to Radar. “I hope in the future he can get the help he needs.”

“I hope it works out well for his family and him,” Campion added.

Campion resigned from Anchorage DA’s earlier this year and now has his own private practice.

As Radar reported Monday, Track's latest incident at his parents' quickly turned violent. The 28-year-old father of two showed up to Todd and Sarah's front door “freaking out and was on some type of medication.” When Todd threatened Track with a gun at the door, the veteran broke a window to enter the house and pinned his father to the ground, court documents continued.

Track was charged with burglary, assault, and criminal mischief.

Radar can confirm Track is still behind bars, though bail has been set at $5,000 cash.
