Anchorage television station KTUU reports that Track Palin’s attorney requested his bail be lowered Wednesday from $5,000.

A police affidavit says the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee told authorities Saturday that her son was “freaking out” and on some kind of medication. Officers said Todd Palin was bleeding from cuts on his head.
