America's favorite Irrelevant Grizzly Mom reportedly screamed "Don't you know who I am?" and had to smooth things over with local police after her whole damn brood got involved in a physical fight at a "snowmachine" party last Saturday night in Alaska, multiple sources say.
The altercation, first reported by several local politics blogs and largely confirmed with police by Wonkette, apparently started over a disagreement between Track Palin and man who had once dated his sister Willow. At its height, police say, the melee involved 20 people. Blogger Amanda Coyne explains the details as she received them, not all of which have been confirmed:
The details are a little sketchy, but there's enough of them, from enough different sources, that a story emerges, a story that according to the gossip Gods, looks kind of like this: There's some sort of unofficial birthday/Iron Dog-type/snowmachine party in Anchorage. A nice, mellow party, until the Palin's show up. There's beer, of course, and maybe other things.
Which is all fine, but just about the time when some people might have had one too many, a Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow's. Track isn't happy with this guy, the story goes. There's words, and more.
The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn't. At this point, he's up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it's something to hear when Sarah screams, "Don't you know who I am!"
And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, "This isn't some damned Hillbilly reality show!" No, it's what happens when the former First Family of Alaska comes knocking.
As people were leaving in a cab, Track was seen on the street, shirtless, flipping people off, with Sarah right behind him, and Todd somewhere in the foreground, tending to his bloody nose.
Another blogger reported that Todd Palin "apparently puffed up his chest and made some threatening remarks. (The 'C' word may have been uttered at one point)." He added that Bristol Palin had slugged the owner of the house where the party was hosted, and identified that owner as "2010 Iron Dog winner Chris Olds." The Iron Dog bills itself as "The World's Longest Toughest Snowmobile Race."
Wonkette's Rebecca Schoenkopf confirmed with the Anchorage Police Department "that a huge bloody mess of a brawl between multiple subjects took place Saturday night, and that the Palins were 'present.'" But police added that since no charges were pressed by any of the parties, the participants' names haven't been released... yet.
