In the audio, an upset Bristol Palin can be heard telling police that she began fighting with other guests at a party near Anchorage, Alaska, after her sister Willow complained that a woman had attacked her.
“My little sister comes over to me and says ‘some old lady just fucking pushed me, she just hit me,’” Bristol Palin says in the recording. “Oh fucking hell no, no one’s gonna touch my sister.”
Palin then says that when she confronted the woman, she was attacked by a man, who pushed her down and dragged her across the grass, saying, “You slut, you fucking cunt.” Palin says on the recording that someone took her $300 sunglasses and shoes.
When a police officer on the tape tries to clarify that Palin confronted an older woman, Palin says she has no idea of the woman's age.
“I don’t know how old she was -- some lady with grey hair, who wants to push my 20-year-old sister. I’m gonna defend my sister. She’s 20 years old.”
A police report released earlier this month identifies Korey Klingenmeyer, a host of the party, as the man who allegedly pushed Bristol Palin to the ground. The report says Palin punched Klingenmeyer multiple times.
Palin told the officer on the recording that she had injuries to her face and knees, and that her 5-year-old son was waiting for her in a car.
Prosecutors have said they won’t press charges in the brawl.
“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!,” Sarah Palin wrote.
