Just when you thought this guy could not get any dumber.

The domestic-violence assault charges filed Saturday against him mark the second time Palin has been arrested for attacking his ex-girlfriend, Jordan Loewe. The two have a young son together.
Loewe came to his house Friday to drop off their son, according to the affidavit. Palin blocked her exit when she tried to leave, Loewe told Sommerville. Then he told her she couldn’t go.
She told him she’d call police, and Palin took away her phone, Sommerville wrote. “Jordan made it outside to her vehicle in the driveway and was in the driver seat when Track followed her out and was on top of her, hitting her in the head.”
Loewe told the trooper she went back into the house to get her son and take him with her, as Palin continued to hit her in the head and buttocks, the document says. She got her phone back from Palin after wrestling with him while screaming for help.
Keep in mind that all of this happened right in front of their son Charlie.
Jordan managed to get away and went to a nearby gas station to call the police.
Medics found that Jordan had scratches on her arms and the back of her head was red from the multiple punches.
So then the State Troopers arrived:
Sommerville, together with another trooper and a sergeant, drove to Palin’s home and saw him sitting on a couch, according to the affidavit. It took repeated attempts to get Palin to come to the door.
Palin said Loewe calling troopers is her “power move” and that she actually assaulted him, Sommerville wrote. Palin refused to provide more information.
The trooper described a chaotic arrest after that.
Sommerville told Palin he was under arrest and ordered him to stand while grabbing his right arm and starting to put his hand behind his back, the affidavit says. He kicked over a coffee table when Sommerville and the sergeant tried to get his arms behind his back. The sergeant pulled Palin to the ground, and Sommerville tossed out of reach a knife that fell out of Palin’s pocket.
Sommerville put Palin in handcuffs and escorted him to his patrol car, the affidavit says. Palin was struggling and then threw his head back toward Sommerville’s face. The trooper tried to avoid the blow and lost his balance near a ditch, sending both men to the ground.
He held Palin down and with the other trooper adjusted the handcuffs before getting him on his feet and into the back of the car, the affidavit says. Sommerville took Palin to the hospital for a check of his wrist, which he said hurt from the cuffs, before he was medically cleared and taken to jail.
He tried to headbutt the arresting officer, what a genius.
Now there is no mention of alcohol in the report, though everything about this sounds like a drunken rage.
Another detail picked up by Yahoo News is this:
Patrick Bergt, Palin’s lawyer in the earlier case, said he hasn’t been contacted to represent Palin again. Palin family attorney John Tiemessen said he had no firsthand knowledge of the new allegations.
It sounds as if Track’s parents are not willing to bail him out this time, and it also sounds as if the Veteran’s Court is no longer an option.
This could mean that Track has now used up all of his Get Out of Jail free cards and will finally have to face the consequences of his actions.
About time, don’t you think?
