Republican politician Sarah Palin's son, Track Palin, has landed himself in legal trouble yet again. The 29-year-old was reportedly arrested on Friday night after Alaska State Troopers responded to a "report of a disturbance" in Wasilla, according to reports.

An online dispatch report stated that after authorities reached the scene, an "investigation revealed" that Track had allegedly "assaulted an acquaintance at his residence" and that "when the acquaintance attempted to call authorities, he prevented her by taking away her phone," PEOPLE reported.

Shortly after the probe, authorities charged Track with domestic violence, interfering with a report of domestic violence, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct, according to reports.

The dispatch report also stated that Track was "remanded to MSPT [Mat-Su Pretrial Facility] where he was held without bail." After his arrest, Track appeared in court on Saturday in Palmer, Alaska, where he pleaded "not guilty, for sure" to all the four charges laid against him.

According to a local news outlet KTUU, Track currently "faces three Class A misdemeanors that allow for up to a year behind bars and a $25,000 fine" and a "Class B misdemeanor that allows up to one day in jail and $2,000 fine."

Earlier, the 29-year-old, in June, had pleaded guilty to a first-degree criminal trespass as part of a plea deal related to an alleged assault of his father last year.

Track had subsequently avoided an assault charge and a year-long prison sentence by pleading guilty. Under the deal, he has been asked to attend "a therapeutic program" offered in Alaska in Veterans Court.

Track's attorney, Patrick Bergt, had said at the time that the program is "intensive" and lasts nearly nine months. If Track successfully finishes the program, his charge could be altered from first degree to second degree, which would mean a prison sentence of only 10 days.

“He will participate in three phases, each phase lasts about 90 days. If he fails, he would have to serve a year in jail," Bergt had said while talking to PEOPLE.

The politician's son was arrested in December 2017 on domestic violence charges after an incident at his parents' home in Wasilla. Reports also stated that Track was serving two years of probation on a plea deal from a domestic violence arrest in January 2016 at the time of his December arrest. He was accused of allegedly assaulting his then-girlfriend and pointing a gun at her.
