Court documents say 26-year-old Track Palin is charged with assault, interfering with the report of a domestic violence crime and possessing a weapon while intoxicated in connection with the incident Monday night at the Wasilla, Alaska, home of his parents, where he lives.

Palin family attorney John Tiemessen declined to comment Tuesday on the matter other than to say in an email that respect for the family's privacy is appreciated "as Track receives the help that he and many of our returning veterans need."

Track Palin's arraignment was held Tuesday, but Tiemessen was not sure if he entered a plea yet.
