Police in Anchorage, Alaska, have decided against filing any charges relating to a huge brawl involving multiple Palins last month—but people in the city might decide against inviting the clan to any house parties. A 24-page report released yesterday, which can be seen in full here, contains reports from five police officers and statements from more than 15 witnesses that back up early reports of a messy, drunken incident with Todd Palin, daughter Bristol, and son Track involved in physical fights and Sarah Palin and daughter Willow arguing with partygoers, reports Alaska Dispatch News.

In their reports, police officers described encountering an "angry and intoxicated" Track Palin and a "heavily intoxicated and upset" Bristol Palin, who had apparently been involved in separate altercations at the party of "moderately intoxicated" homeowner Korey Klingenmeyer. Multiple witnesses say Klingenmeyer was punched "pretty hard" in the face at least five times by Bristol, and Todd and Track—who was "bloodied and shirtless" by the time cops arrived—fought with partygoers over what Track told police were comments made about his sisters, reports the BBC. "We eventually separated everyone and the Palin family ended up leaving," one officer's report concludes. (A source close to the family has offered their version of events, which involved Sarah Palin in "mama grizzly" mode.)
