Palin is involved in a drunken brawl during a birthday party she attends in Alaska. According to police reports, Palin punches home owner Korey Klingenmeyer in the face repeatedly after he pushes her to the ground. Neither side is pressing charges. Sara Palin defends her daughter:
I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you’ll ever meet. I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar! As you can imagine, they and my extended family have experienced so many things (liberal media-driven) that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith, and I’m thankful for our friends’ prayer shield that surrounds them, allowing faith to remain their anchor. Thank you, prayer warriors! I love you!
