It's been an interesting ride for the Palin family since they were thrust into the spotlight after Sarah Palin was selected as the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee.

Since then, Sarah has resigned as governor of Alaska. 

Joined Fox News as a contributor. 

And the family was featured on TLC. 

"I would describe myself and my family as just normal, average, everyday Americans."

Everyday Americans that do a bit of this.

National Geographic: "It starts with a quick right jab, then descends into an all out brawl."

Okay, so maybe not that intense. Or, maybe so. 

Thursday, the Anchorage Police Department released a report which details a brawl that involved several heavily intoxicated members of the Palin clan and reads a lot like a summary of an episode of The Jersey Shore. 

The report claims many of the Palins were attending a birthday party when Sarah's husband, Todd, and son, Track, got into a fight with several people that resulted in a bloodied face for Track.

It's still not really clear what started the fight. Todd and Track both claim they were trying to help a friend who was jumped by several men but that friend refused to give details to the police. 

TMZ writes the fight erupted when Bristol Palin attacked a woman for shoving her sister, Willow. She then claims the man hosting the party dragged her around on the ground calling her a "slut."

But witnesses say Bristol walked up to the man and punched him 5 to 6 times in the face before he finally stopped her and shoved her away.

The Palins' stories seemed to clash with many of the other witnesses accounts in the report but the Alaska Post Dispatch quotes the host of the party who said, "A fight broke out and the Palins ended up losing."
